The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations

Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations

von Mccain, John / Salter, Mark   (Autor)

In this candid new political memoir from Senator John McCain, an American hero reflects on his life—and what matters most. "I don't know how much longer I'll be here. Maybe I'll have another five years. Maybe, with the advances in oncology, they'll find new treatments for my cancer that will extend my life. Maybe I'll be gone before you read this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable. But I'm prepared for either contingency, or at least I'm getting prepared. I have some things I'd like to take care of first, some work that needs finishing, and some people I need to see. And I want to talk to my fellow Americans a little more if I may." So writes John McCain in this inspiring, moving, frank, and deeply personal memoir. Written while confronting a mortal illness, McCain looks back with appreciation on his years in the Senate, his historic 2008 campaign for the presidency against Barack Obama, and his crusades on behalf of democracy and human rights in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Always the fighter, McCain attacks the "spurious nationalism" and political polarization afflicting American policy. He makes an impassioned case for democratic internationalism and bi-partisanship. He tells stories of his most satisfying moments of public service, including his work with another giant of the Senate, Edward M. Kennedy. Senator McCain recalls his disagreements with several presidents, and minces no words in his objections to some of President Trump's statements and policies. At the same time, he offers a positive vision of America that looks beyond the Trump presidency. The Restless Wave is John McCain at his best.

Kritik

"Senator Lindsey Graham once described his friend John McCain as someone who would 'run across the street to get in a good fight.' McCain's final battle came straight to him. I'm not talking about the one against brain cancer...I'm talking about the one against Donald Trump. He wages it in a forthcoming book, The Restless Wave...McCain has always believed, to his core, in sacrifice, honor and allegiance to something larger than oneself...Such grace is unimaginable from Trump. That's why it's so vital that McCain is using his waning time to model it." -Frank Bruni, The New York Times
