The power struggle between Claude Pepper and Ed Ball in the mid-20th centur y in large part determined the future of Florida. This lively account of th eir interlocking careers--both dominated by a personal quest for power, mon ey, and purpose--illuminates the historical role of these two forceful pers onalities.
