Abstract:

This definitive, balanced work by Kansas City Star Washington Correspondent Jake H. Thompson, who has intensively covered Senator Bob Dole for more than five years, develops the senator's personal and professional life, providing insights into the complex inner workings of one of America's most important and influential politicians, whose next career step may well be this nation's highest office, or at least his party's nomination for that office. Dole has been deeply involved in some of the defining issues of the era, including World War II, Watergate, the surge of the Republican conservative movement, Operation Desert Storm and Republican opposition leader during the Clinton presidency.

From his early boyhood through his World War II experiences to his rise to chairman of the Republican Party to vice-presidential candidate with Gerald Ford to senatorial leader of the Republican Party, as well as perhaps its most prominent spokesman, Dole is placed at the center of what is sure to be a volatile and hard fought mid-term election in 1994, a proving and testing ground for the Presidential race in 1996. Bob Dole: The Republicans' Man For All Seasons provides in-depth perspective on the man and his career, with over ninety new interviews by the author with the senator's family, friends and colleagues, including his wife Elizabeth Dole, former president George Bush and General Colin Powell.
