From the Inside Flap
In 1999, John McCain wrote one of the
most acclaimed and bestselling memoirs of the decade, Faith of My
Fathers. That book ended in 1972, with McCain?s release from
imprisonment in Vietnam. This is the rest of his story, about his great
American journey from the U.S. Navy to his electrifying run for the
presidency, interwoven with heartfelt portraits of the mavericks who
have inspired him through the years?Ted Williams, Theodore Roosevelt,
visionary aviation proponent Billy Mitchell, Marlon Brando in Viva
Zapata!, and, most indelibly, Robert Jordan. It was Jordan, Hemingway?s
protagonist in For Whom the Bell Tolls, who showed McCain the ideals of
heroism and sacrifice, stoicism and redemption, and why certain causes,
despite the costs, are . . .
Worth the Fighting For
five and a half years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, naval aviator
John McCain returned home a changed man. Regaining his health and
flight-eligibility status, he resumed his military career, commanding
carrier pilots and serving as the navy's liaison to what is sometimes
ironically called the world?s most exclusive club, the United States
Senate. Accompanying Senators John Tower and Henry ?Scoop? Jackson on
international trips, McCain began his political education in the
company of two masters, leaders whose standards he would strive to
maintain upon his election to the U.S. Congress. There, he learned
valuable lessons in cooperation from a good-humored congressman from
the other party, Morris Udall. In 1986, McCain was elected to the U.S.
Senate, inheriting the seat of another role model, Barry Goldwater.
his time in public office, McCain has seen acts of principle and acts
of craven self-interest. He describes both ex-tremes in these pages,
with his characteristic straight talk and humor. He writes honestly of
the lowest point in his career, the Keating Five savings and loan
debacle, as well as his triumphant moments?his return to Vietnam and
his efforts to normalize relations between the U.S. and Vietnamese
governments; his fight for campaign finance reform; and his galvanizing
bid for the presidency in 2000.
