Ted Widmer’s biography of Martin Van Buren has some strengths and weaknesses To a reader unfamiliar with the 8th President the book skims a great deal and the person himself only rarely shines through.

Ted Widmer’s biography of Martin Van Buren has some strengths and weaknesses. Its brevity is to be expected as part of the American Presidents Series but unlike, for example, the Washington and Jackson books in this series, it never penetrates beyond the surface of its subject. In Widmer’s defense, Van Buren, who was the consummate politician in the first half of the 19th century, is especially difficult to write about briefly because his political maneuvering was so complex. To a reader unfamiliar with the 8th President the book skims a great deal and the person himself only rarely shines through.

It traces the beginnings of a Russian-Orthodox presence in Peking several decades back before the commonly held date of its origin. The tentative beginnings of Russian scholarly and scientific interest in Chinese matters, an outgrowth of the missionary presence in Peking, are also discussed.

Deanna Van Buren designs restorative justice centers that, instead of taking the punitive approach used by a system focused on mass incarceration, treat crime as a breach of relationships and justice as a process where all stakeholders come together.

Deanna Van Buren designs restorative justice centers that, instead of taking the punitive approach used by a system focused on mass incarceration, treat crime as a breach of relationships and justice as a process where all stakeholders come together to repair that breach. With help and ideas from incarcerated men and women, Van Buren is creating dynamic spaces that provide safe venues for dialogue and reconciliation; employment and job training; and social services to help keep people from entering the justice system in the first place

The author gives a brief summary of the political life and accomplishments of Martin Van Buren, 8th President of the U.S. As a person interested in early 19th century U.S. history, I frankly expected more than what this little tome delivers, although the author makes a few interesting observations about Van Buren's political life. The author devotes only about 50 pages of narrative to describe the life of a man who spent over 50 years on the political landscape of New York and the nation. Moreover, the writing is uneven and often leaves the reader asking, "Why did this happen to Van Buren?" As an example, the author really doesn't say much about why Van Buren lost his re-election bid in 1840, though he hints that the issue of a national bank was a primary cause of Van Buren's defeat.
Welles ranks Van Buren as a much more effective President and political figure than do most other historians. The arguments and examples of accomplishments are well worth reading and considering, although not developed in any depth.

In this short simplistic work Ted Wells fails to address critical issues facing Martin Van Buren and other first generation American politicians. For example, the formation of the two party system and the Albany Regency receives a scant parragraph and the comming of the Civil War during Van Buren's active public retirement receives only a few pages. Factual errors also pepper the text which seems to be cobbled from several sources that did not receive full credit. Overall this booklet does not do justice to the political skill of Martin Van Buren nor does it give any insight into the Red Fox of Kinderhook. Michael D. Henderson
