During the 1950s, William F. Knowland was one of the most important figures in American politics. Yet he committed suicide in 1974, following political humiliation, a ruined marriage, and the loss of his family fortune. "This is a political biography of national significance and investigative journalism of the highest order".--Kevin Starr, State Librarian of California. 14 photos.
