Of course. The issue is the small group of people on this site that attacks any person or book that criticizes Grant with the intention of dissuading people from reading works critical of Grant. Lost is the fact that Grant was in fact criticized during his lifetime. Rose and others are reviving a lost discussion. They should be applauded for that.Most people are casual readers and will only want to read a general biography or 2. Each of us on the forum I suppose has his or her own particular areas of interest. I would think most of us "study" those areas, but it is impossible to go in depth on every topic that we find interesting.
