What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Few U.S. Senators ever achieve the fame of North Carolina's Sam Ervin, whose punishing inquiry into the perfidies of the Nixon Administration brought down a President. Ervin became a hero to millions, but as Karl Campbell demonstrates in this carefully crafted, illuminating biography, Ervin was not the progressive saint of 1970s legend. There were few leaders better on civil liberties, few worse on civil rights. Campbell gives us both sides of Ervin, and his even-handed treatment enables us to reach our own judgment on this brilliant, complicated man.—Larry J. Sabato, director, Center for Politics, University of Virginia, author of A More Perfect Constitution
