A Glorious Disaster
Barry Goldwater's Presidential Campaign and the Origins of the Conservative Movement
By (author) J. William Middendorf
Glorious Disaster by J. William Middendorf
Book DescriptionBarry Goldwater's 1964 run for the presidency was one of the major political turning points of the twentieth century: The policy positions and electoral strategies of that campaign have become standard tenets of Republican politics. A member of the "Draft Goldwater" movement as early as 1962, Bill Middendorf had better than a ringside seat for this pivotal event and knows its inside story better than anyone else. A Glorious Disaster tells that story in all its rollicking, agonizing, and never-before-published detail.
