vicious and ill tempered, more especially latterly, having frequently hunted

Americaso easy to read—like a pirate's novel, as he once described it—even for
those who are not particularly knowledgeable about political or economic matters
. The book flows with the grace of a tale; it is impossible to put it down. His
arguments, his rage, and his passion would be overwhelming if they were not
expressed ...
