Mavericks: The Lives and Battles of Montana's Political Legends

di John Morrison


Prodotto non disponibile
President Grover Cleveland, who signed the legislation granting statehood to Montana, once growled: "What's the use of being elected and reelected unless you stand for something?" The lives and careers of Montana's political legends, Joseph K. Toole, Ella Knowles, Joseph M. Dixon, Thomas Walsh, Jeannette Rankin, Burton K. Wheeler, James E. Murray, Mike Mansfield, and Lee Metcalf echo President Cleveland's query. At a time when Americans search for reasons to reinvolve themselves in government, the stories of these nine politicians remind us of the qualities that underpin effective leadership. Their lives are inextricably interwoven with Montana political history; their careers were launched and their values were hewn by a state rich with populism, progressivism, and activism.
Born of admiration for the careers and contributions of Montana's distinguished public leaders and concern for the effective conduct of public affairs, this volume offers readers a look at Montana's remarkable political heritage. This is essential reading for Montanans, those interested in the dynamics of politics, and general readers wishing to gain a greater understanding of our nation's political heritage as exemplified in the lives of nine dedicated individuals.
