Info: Our guest is Scott Miller, author of the new book on the assassination of President William McKinley on September 6, 1901. In particular, the book examines McKinley and his assassin, Leon Czolgosz, in the context of the era in which they lived. During that period, the country changed in many ways. It was recovering from an economic downturn. Big business was producing many new products (Coke, Ivory Soap) and was looking worldwide for new markets. The book also examines Czolgosz’s interest in the rising anarchist movement and how it influenced him. Prior to writing this, his first book, Scott Miller reported for The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and Reuters. He was also a contributor to CNBC and Great Britain’s Sky News.
