Wayne Morse: A Political Biography
"The career of Wayne Morse, Oregon's maverick senator (1944-68), offers insights on political issues that shaped the twentieth century and continue to echo in the twenty-first. Best known for being one of two senators to oppose the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution that initiated U.S. military intervention in Vietnam, Morse was also outspoken on McCarthyism, the labor movement, civil rights, education, foreign policy, and the importance of constitutional checks and balances. Unpredictable and independent, Morse was never afraid to go against prevailing opinion and party doctrine in defense of personal convictions. In a balanced account and with lucid prose, Mason Drukman offers a critical look at several decades of American political life."--Cover page 4.
