Abstract:

"Oregon Senator Mark Hatfield has consistently offered integrity and vision in a culture groping for meaning. In Against the Grain: Reflections of a Rebel Republican, Hatfield reveals compelling insights on his half century of public service. He offers hope, purpose, and perspective for the critical years ahead." "Hatfield's political life is punctuated by strong stands of conscience, well conceived. As governor of Oregon, he led a personal and gripping struggle against capital punishment until the death penalty was successfully overturned. He stood as lone governor in the nation vocally opposing the Johnson administration's Vietnam policy."

"For five consecutive terms as senator, Hatfield made his mark, sometimes softly, sometimes stridently, fighting to serve the people of his country with honesty and devotion. Constantly opposing the military-industrial complex and the violence of the arms race, he fought for housing, employment, education, and basic human dignity."--Jacket.
