In my view any book prefaced by Gore Vidal is worth checking out. A survey of mostly 'heartland' or 'Middle-American' writers, politicians, and other public notables of the old populist, isolationist bent: Hannibal Hamlin Garland, Senator Fulbright, et al. Kauffman writes well and fairly, although the pace is often too quick to adequately deepen one's understanding of obscure figures who once made an impact on the culture, if not a lasting one.
