Joseph Taylor Robinson's career as a United States congressional leader spanned the most momentous legislative debates of the early twentieth century, from the Versailles Peace Treaty to the first one hundred days of the New Deal. This biography is a fitting tribute to the life and accomplishments of undoubtedly one of the most powerful U.S. senators of that period. An important political figure in Arkansas from the time he was elected to the state legislature in 1895, Joe T., as he was popularly called, became nationally prominent when he ascended to the Democratic leadership of the U.S. Senate in 1923. Weller uses the story of Robinson's life to illuminate the inner chambers of the Senate and to explore such controversial issues as the League of Nations debate, the Teapot Dome Scandal, and FDR's plan to "pack" the Supreme Court. The study further chronicles Robinson's run for the vice-presidency in 1928, the first southerner on a major ticket after the Civil War, and his three terms as chairman of the Democratic National Convention, in 1920, 1928, and 1936.
