KIRKUS REVIEW

Listed as a Must Book in our adult section, this is a rallying point around which thinking young Americans will flock as well. White, a gifted journalist, takes the cold ashes of a political campaign and injects such a sense of immediacy that we relive the entire race, the whole pattern of the pre-convention months, the gruelling struggle in the primaries, the fight for nomination in San Francisco, the fight for the platform in Chicago. A perceptive analysis of the inside story of the campaign told with extraordinary objectivity.
