Description de l’éditeur
AN INTIMATE, HUMAN AND REVEALING PORTRAIT OF THE MAN WHO MADE SUCH A UNIQUE IMPACT UPON THE AMERICAN SCENE.
BARRY GOLDWATER stands in the forefront of the new wave of American conservatism. His appeal is not only to those usually associated with vested interests but also to a large body of women, college students and Southerners.
Allied against him are liberals, labor and Easterners. Almost without exception, Americans are lined up solidly for or against Barry Goldwater. There are few neutrals.
Veteran reporters Wood and Smith have delved into the phenomenon of Barry Goldwater with piercing insight. Nothing is left out—from the rise of the family’s fortunes in Arizona to the growth of the Senator’s influence in Washington.
This is a book that every responsible American—whatever his political beliefs—will want to read. It is the story of one of the most important and controversial figures in government and of his particular brand of conservatism.
Illustrated and including excerpts, from his major speeches.
