Ted Van Dyk, a shrewd veteran of countless platform fights and straw polls, casts fresh light on many of the leading personalities and watershed events of American politics since JFK. Van Dyk uses telling anecdotes to show what it was like to be part of the Humphrey, McGovern, and other liberal Democratic presidential campaigns from 1968 to 1992. This is one of the best inside political accounts that I have read.-William Rorabaugh, author of Berkeley at War and Kennedy and the Promise of the Sixties
