Description

Barry Goldwater's 1964 run for the presidency was one of the major political turning points of the twentieth century: The policy positions and electoral strategies of that campaign have become standard tenets of Republican politics. A member of the "Draft Goldwater" movement as early as 1962, Bill Middendorf had better than a ringside seat for this pivotal event and knows its inside story better than anyone else. A Glorious Disaster tells that story in all its rollicking, agonizing, and never-before-published detail.
