A Call to Service: My Vision for a Better America

A Call to Service: My Vision for a Better America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

John Kerry has had a remarkable life and is one of the most respected public servants in America today, having come to the forefront of national consciousness as a veteran speaking out against the Vietnam War just after he returned from the front lines. He is one of the most powerful leaders of the Democratic Party and — with a fierce landmark presidential campaign looming before the 2004 election — could one day become the most powerful man in the world.

As an outsider among insiders in the U.S. Senate, John Kerry has never been afraid to battle the political establishment and fight the fights that need fighting. Now, in A Call to Service, Kerry formally introduces himself to the nation. In a book rich with autobiographical details that explain the experiences behind the ideas, Kerry offers his vision for America.

Review:

"Should he secure the nomination, Kerry promises to run on a platform of ideas. This book shows that he has a lot of them to offer." Publishers Weekly
