"The highest praise that I can bestow upon The Honey and the Hemlock by Eli Sagan is that it's the political equivalent of Harold Bloom's remarkable The Book of J--an audacious rereading of ancient texts that take on new and startling meaning when seen through the eyes of a daring interpreter."--Jonathan Kirsch, Los Angeles Times
