Summary
Born to poor tenant farmers in a log cabin in Graves County, Kentucky, Alben Barkley (1877-1956) rose to achieve a political stature in the US equalled by few of his contemporaries. James K. Libbey provides a full-length biography of this larger-than-life personality as Barkley transitioned from local politician to congressman, then senator, senate majority leader, vice president, and senator once again
