Margaret Chase Smith: Beyond Convention [Hardcover] Schmidt, Patricia L.
“This biography, based on meticulous research in all the primary sources, including both public and private documents and extensive interviews with Smith and those who knew her, allows us to see a human being, to hear her voice in conversation, not just in political statements. . . . A fascinating aspect of Schmidt’s analysis is the role of Smith’s ‘Declaration of Conscience’ in this career; atypical in a sense, politically a serious error, it also is a part of a pattern in Smith’s political life, which could not be more different from today’s poll-and-PAC politicians.” – Patricia Craddock, author of Edward Gibbon: Luminous Historian
