Description

The legacy of Barry Goldwater, firebrand politician, optimistic conservative, and defining figure in American public life, is more important than ever in an era in which American conservatism has lost its way. This illuminating look at his life assembles the unscripted text of his letters and the private journal he kept for over 50 years, recording his reflections on a rich political and personal life. Bestselling author John Dean here combines his analysis with Goldwater's own words. With unprecedented access to his correspondence, interviews, and behind-the-scenes conversations, Dean sheds new light on the late Senator's thoughts, from Richard Nixon to his growing discomfort with the rise of the extreme right. Pure Goldwater isn't simply a look back at the exceptional life of an icon; it is a guidepost for us to re-evaluate today's politicians and America's future.
