Very Good in Very Good jacket. pp. 185, Offering both an autobiography and a critique of Congress, Reuss, the former liberal Democratic congressman from Milwaukee, accounts for the first 86 years of his life. His sixth book reflects his enduring and interwoven public policy and personal interests. It tells the story of a German American who grew up in Milwaukee during World War I and shows the impact of the New Deal and World War II on him. The latter war made him an internationalist and his education prepared him for the law, but his primary interests were political. As a U.S. Representative (1955-83), he authored the legislation that led to the Peace Corps. The title suggests nostalgia for political life from 1948 to 1968, a good government era considered by Reuss as comparable to the republic's founding and the New Deal. Political buffs will rejoice in reliving this progressive era through this highly readable account. 8vo.
