Abstract:

Combines biography and legislative history with "a call for an active citizen politics that could retsore democracy and build a progressive politics. Insisting that effective activism must include good ideas and policy, grassroots organizing, and electoral politics, Wellstone describes his astonishing his 1990 election and his 1996 reelection in the face of a highly negative campaign that consistently portrayed him as 'embarrassingly liberal' "Wellstone promised to be what Washingtonians always say their city desperately needs: a colorful character: No one was disappointed. He still considers himself an activist, and his book reads like the work of an activist."--Wall Street Journal.--
