The Good Fight: A Life in Liberal Politics
Former Vice President Walter Mondale's reflections on a life in politics and a call for restoring civility to the nation’s political discourse.
During more than five decades in public life, Walter Mondale has played a leading role in America’s movement for social change—in civil rights, environmentalism, consumer protection, and women’s rights—and helped to forge the modern Democratic Party. Here, with a measured tone of reason and a belief in compromise, Mondale reflects on a career of highs and lows with a set of unwavering progressive values at its core. Including a new preface in this paperback edition, The Good Fight is a compelling account of a lifetime of public service that sheds light on important events and issues of recent American history and how they affect our lives today.
Fritz Mondale and I worked side by side in the White House through four intense years of challenges and left office with a friendship that would last a lifetime. We were also able to tell the American people: ‘We told the truth, we obeyed the law, we kept the peace.’ This memoir is a compelling history of those years and of the life of the remarkable man I know Fritz to be. — President Jimmy Carter
