How William F. Buckley Jr. Changed The Face Of American Politics

Featured on the Federalist Radio Hour, professor and author Alvin Felzenberg’s new book on William F. Buckley Jr. is part biography, part political history.


Alvin Felzenberg’s new book, “A Man and His Presidents: The Political Odyssey of William F. Buckley Jr.” gives an enlightening account of one of the most compelling personalities in American politics.

Felzenberg sheds lights into Buckley’s childhood, charm, career, and key relationships with leaders like Nancy and Ronald Reagan. “Reagan said that Buckley was not only his guide and mentor as he made the long journey from Democrat to conservative Republican, but that William F. Buckley in all did more to create the Reagan presidency more than anyone else,” he said.
