Abstract:

"Joseph A. Califano, Jr., grew up in a tight-knit working class family in Depression-era Brooklyn. His parents instilled in their son a work ethic and devotion to Church that stayed with him as he rose through the ranks of America's ruling class. From Jesuit undergraduate schools to Harvard Law, influential law firms, Robert McNamara's Pentagon, Lyndon Johnson's White House, Jimmy Carter's cabinet, Fortune 500 board rooms to his founding of the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University, Califano has been hard-charging, effective, and committed to his causes - whether that meant reforming the military, working for equal rights for all, his struggle to be a committed Catholic in America, or finally his passion to combat addictions that ruin so many American lives." "Inside takes us inside Califano's pubic and private life as one of America's most dynamic and controversial public servants struggles to deal with the tensions of demanding public service, family life, and personal religious belief."--BOOK JACKET.
