He is more sympathetic and nuanced than Caro, more fluid and (despite the significant length of his book) more concise than Dallek—and equally scrupulous in his use of Brand: Free Press.   In “Valiant Ambition,” Philbrick debunks certain treasured notions even while discerning their virtues. The resulting ambiguities may be best captured by the book’s sotto voce ending, with Author: David Waldstreicher.

The low point for ambition in American politics was Jimmy Carter’s “malaise” speech. Before the lights could go out on the seventies, he summed up a decade of stagflation, recession, war, political scandals, labor strikes, gas lines, and bad taste with this insightful conclusion: The glum national mood was the fault of the American people. Ambition not only “killed the cat” but killed relationships as well in texts like Sister Carrie and Death of a Salesman. While the American Dream was supposed to be a collective success at its initial stage, ambition, along with a pinch of greed and materialism were perfect ingredients to the realization of an American nightmare rather.   In addition the author argues that reconstituting ambition as a virtue was a necessary precondition of the American republic. The book suggests that even in the twenty-first century, ambition has never fully lost its ties to vice and continues to exhibit a dual nature, positive or negative depending upon the ends, the means, and the individual.   NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF VALIANT AMBITION.
