What People are Saying About This

Steve Gillon

A wonderful book about a fascinating figure. This gracefully written narrative not only adds new dimension to our understanding of Hubert Humphrey, it tells a much larger story of the travail of postwar liberalism: its noble ambitions, its contradictions, and its ultimate surrender to conservatism. The Politics of Equality represents political biography at its very best.
