http://schema.org/description

  • "Describes the life of Jesse Jackson, a Civil rights worker who dreamed of becoming an "American Gandhi" since his youth."
  • "From Library Journal: Journalist Frady's biography of Civil Rights leader and former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson makes extensive use of numerous interviews and conversations that the author had with Jackson, his family, and many of his associates. The book offers valuable insights into Jackson's difficult childhood and its effect on his personality; his relationship with Martin Luther King; and his two presidential campaigns. Frady also accompanied Jackson on a trip to Iraq in 1990 and provides an excellent account of how Jackson persuaded Iraq's leader, Saddam Hussein, to release hostages taken during the early days of the Persian Gulf crisis. Unfortunately, Frady has a tendency to be repetitious, and his writing style may sometimes hinder the general reader's understanding rather than facilitate it. Nonetheless, this is the most comprehensive biography available of a very important American political figure."
