Pulitzer Prize winner Allen Drury has penetrated the world's stormiest political battleground -- the smoke-filled committee rooms of the United States Senate -- to reveal the bitter conflicts set in motion when the President calls upon the Senate to confirm his controversial choice for Secretary of State. This novel is a true epic showing in fascinating detail the minds and motives of the statesmen, the opportunists, the idealists. From a Senate old-timer's wily maneuvers, a vicious demagogues blistering smear campaign, the ugly personal jealousies that turn a highly qualified candidate into a public spectacle, to the tragic martyrdom of a presidential aspirant who refuses to sacrifice his principles for his career never has there been a more revealing picture of Washington's intricate political, diplomatic, and social worlds.
