Summary
  • "In 1964, thirty-five-year-old Tom Foley filed for Washington's Fifth District congressional seat despite conventional wisdom that he could never be elected. He defied that conventional wisdom by winning in 1964, and continued to win the largely Republican district for the next thirty years."--Jacket
  • "In 1989 he became the first Westerner to serve as Speaker of the House, the most powerful position in Congress. He retained that position until defeated in the Republican landslide election of 1994. President Bill Clinton then appointed him Ambassador to Japan."--Jacket
  • "Upon leaving Congress in 1994, Foley began a collaboration with his former press secretary, Jeffrey Biggs, to record his reminiscences of public life. It is also an insider's account of how Congress works, as Foley and Biggs reflect on virtually every significant political topic from the 1960s to the 1990s."--Jacket
