About this product
- DescriptionSeasoned journalist Douglas Rooks gives us a thoughtful and highly readable look at George Mitchell and his public work. While the book traces his personal life, it is primarily a political biography, exploring his time in the Senate as well as his public work before and after his elected terms.Compiled from extensive interviews with Mitchell as well as staffers and others who've kwn and worked with him, it is as much an exploration of American politics at a time when politics could actually be said to have worked, as it is about a man whose vision and ideals have helped shape the world.
- Author BiographyDouglas Rooks is a career journalist who worked for weekly and daily newspapers for 25 years. He served as editor of the Granite State News in Wolfeboro, N.H., editorial page editor for the Kennebec Journal in Augusta, Maine, and editor and publisher of Maine Times.
