Summary

Summary

There have been few politicians like Barry Goldwater, the godfather of modern conservatism. His outspoken candor, unquestioned integrity, and deep devotion to what was best for the country are definite contrasts to most of the political figures of today. This collection of exclusive anecdotes and personal stories brings the senator from Arizona to life and reveals the indelible mark he left on the political landscape of the 20th century and beyond.
-- This book will be on the shelves just in time for the upcoming presidential election -- the perfect gift for followers of conservative politics
-- Unlike most biographies, this is a taut, accessible collection of exclusive anecdotes and colorful stories from former presidents, fellow senators, and many others
-- At a time when political integrity is virtually an oxymoron, Goldwater comes across as a shining light to those who are turned off by today's political climate.
