Sinopsis:

Set in any era, Dick Thornburgh's brilliant career would merit study and retelling. He was the first Republican elected to two successive terms as governor of Pennsylvania (1979-87). He served in the United States Department of Justice under five presidents, including three years as attorney general in the cabinets of Presidents Reagan and Bush (1988-91). As undersecretary-general of the United Nations (1993), he was the highest ranking American in the organization and a strong voice for reform. Thornburgh's twenty-five-year path through the highest levels of local, state, and national government has coincided with some of the most compelling events of the American century. In this book, he follows his well-known mantra to pursue the trail of evidence wherever it leads as he candidly presents both the public and private stories of a life fully engaged with public service to his country. Nationally, Thornburgh is best remembered for his three years as attorney general, when he managed some of the most vexing legal matters of the modern age: the Savings and Loan and BCCI scandals; controversy over the Iraqgate and INSLAW investigations and the Wichita abortion clinic protests; and

From the Author:

Perceived inconsistencies have caused some observers to wonder aloud whether I am a liberal, a conservative, a former liberal turned conservative, or some other permutation of these labels. In fact, I have always resisted these attempts to label my political philosophy. This has frustrated both political opponents and pundits, who invariably seek to paint the subject of their scrutiny with as broad a brush as possible. . . . My views have, by and large, remained constant; it is the political spectrum itself that has shifted.-Dick Thornburgh
