Insightful and heartfelt, this memoir is one of President Jimmy Carter's best career summations.
James Earl Carter Jr. (born 1924) served as the 39th President of the United States from 1977 to 1981. A Democrat, he previously served as a Georgia State Senator from 1963 to 1967; then as the 76th Governor of Georgia from 1971 to 1975. This memoir contains a useful prefatory chronology of his significant activities through 1982.
