From Library Journal:

The Democratic Party did not originate in 1792, but no matter. In this lavishly illustrated (185 pictures, 45 in color) testimonial, the party's eminent historians--from Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and William E. Leuchtenberg to Alonzo L. Hamby and Steven M. Gillon--provide brief, chronological tributes to its triumphs and travails. Nine chapters of about 15 pages each, written by such specialists as Lance Banning and Jean H. Baker, take the story from 1776 to 1992. There are sections on domestic and foreign policy and 22 individual portraits. John Kenneth Galbraith provides the preface, and Robert B. Reich, in the best essay of the collection, the conclusion. This is celebratory history that plays down the Democrats' longtime proslavery and racist positions and emphasizes its commitment to personal liberties. Essential popular reading for Democrats in this election year.
