Robert Slayton talked about his book Empire Statesman: The Rise and Redemption of Al Smith, published by Free Press. The book describes the political career of Alfred Emanuel Smith (1873-1944), an American politician from a poor, Irish background, who became the first Irish Catholic to be a major party candidate for president. His achievements in the state of New York during his terms as governor, served as the inspiration for much of Roosevelt’s New Deal plan. close
