Looking critically at the military and political halves of John McCain's career, John Karaagac has fashioned a political analysis of McCain that breaks the mold of traditional biography. The book is divided into a series of interpretive essays that highlight themes of political interest throughout McCain's career, providing not only an investigation into a figure whose personal history caught the American imagination, but also a penetrating look into electoral politics. As a work of military history and a critical study of McCain's life, Karaagac's book will appeal to political historians and to anyone interested in a substantive examination of the American political process.
John Karaagac is the author of Between Promise and Policy: Ronald Reagan and Conservative Reformism (Lexington Books, 2000).
