Research and writing leading to publication of a biography of the politician, ambassador, and U.S. presidential adviser Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. (1902-1985).

Senator, bipartisan advisor to five presidents, ambassador, vice presidential running mate, and presidential candidate by popular demand, Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr.'s political career stretched from the 1930s to the 1970s yet has escaped biographical treatment. Lodge’s rise and decline coincided with the end of the Eastern Establishment and its political moderation, a shift in political power to the South and West, and an embrace by the Republican Party of more conservative policies that directly enabled the rebirth of Richard Nixon and the rise of Ronald Reagan. In light of the Trump phenomenon, what can we learn from the first mass conservative movement? The book will also dramatically change the narrative of how the U.S. entered the Vietnam War, based on my recent discovery of President Diem's coup notes and a previously secret Kennedy-Lodge recording in which JFK authorizes a coup against South Vietnam. Yale University Press has agreed to a minimum first print run of 5,000 copies.
