Abstract:

Traces the life and political career of Senator Jesse Helms, examines his role in the conservative political movement, and discusses his influence on the development of American foreign policy.

"Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina, point man for the fundamentalist New Right and proprietor of a vast, national fund-raising machine created to batter liberal candidates, may exert more influence over the future of U.S. politics than even Ronald Reagan himself. In this first full-length, unauthorized study of Helms, the Washington bureau chief of the Baltimore Sun follows him through his early career as a TV commentator battling against civil rights and social change to his current role as the driving force behind the Republican right."--Book Jacket.
