Adlai Stevenson and American politics the odyssey of a Cold War liberal /

"If Adlai Stevenson was not unique," writes Jeff Broadwater, "he was unusual. Presidential candidates who, despite repeated defeats, have been able to retain a devoted following and a visible role in the public life of their day can be counted on one hand." Admirers and detractors alike could agree that Stevenson - who lost back-to-back races as the Democratic nominee for president to the popular Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 1950s - was one of the most eloquent and powerful voices of the decade. In Adlai Stevenson and American Politics, Broadwater illuminates the life and times of a remarkably engaging and influential politician.
