Author Sheldon Hackney reflects on his time as a presidential appointee in "The Politics of Presidential Appointment: A Memoir of the Culture War", his memoir of being an unwilling combatant in a major conflict between the left and right during the time the National Endowment for the Humanities was formed. Hackney seeks to dispel lies and misperceptions about his tenure in this inside look enhanced with a foreword by Vernon Jordan. "The Politics of Presidential Appointment" is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the dark side of letting the president choose his co-workers in charge of the country.
