The Hoover Institution hosted "A Man and His Presidents: The Political Odyssey of William F. Buckley Jr. By Alvin S. Felzenberg" on Monday, July 17, 2017 from 5:00pm - 7:00pm EST.

William F. Buckley Jr. is widely regarded as the most influential American conservative writer, activist, and organizer in the postwar era. In The Man and His Presidents: The Political Odyssey of William F. Buckley, Jr. (publication date: May 2, 2017), Alvin Felzenberg sheds light on little-known aspects of Buckley's career.

A new understanding of the man who changed the face of American politics.

"William F. Buckley was the most consequential journalist of his era because he always was much more than a journalist. This is a brisk, groundbreaking examination of Buckley's history-shaping role as a tireless and sometimes audacious political operative." -George F. Will

"Deeply researched and smoothly written...a superb political biography... [a] fresh account of a much-chronicled figure." -Lee Edwards, The Wall Street Journal
