Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0091931266, Hardcover)

Emphasizing the importance of the future and those who will live through it, this statement seeks to address the lessons that can be learned from the past. Striving to prevent the next generation from making the same mistakes as its predecessors, this recollection highlights those who struggled for justice and inspired the author in his daily work. Disentangling the real questions from the day-to-day business of politics, this autobiography lends strength to the two fires that have burned from the beginning of time—the flame of anger against injustice and the flame of hope.
