Journey of Purpose: Reflections on the Presidency, Multiculturalism, and Third Parties
In this inspiring book, one of the most respected senior figures in American politics discusses why the country should strive to achieve economic growth, fiscal responsibility, and social inclusiveness. Senator Paul Tsongas reveals the lessons he learned as a presidential candidate in 1992, suggests why Americans may turn to a third party in 1996, and articulates principles that this party might follow. "In the hurricane moment of American politics, Paul Tsongas is a valuable observer at the eye of it all-calm but insistent, wise, practical, and candid about the odds of our national success. Journey of Purpose offers the urgent lesson that our storm-racked ship of state bears not only the freight of our own generation but the fate of all the generations still to come."-Mario Cuomo "In his latest book Paul Tsongas challenges America to renew its commitment to future generations by replacing politics as usual with a philosophy based on economic security and social inclusion. This formula for revitalizing our national community is informed by cogent political analysis, and it appeals not just to the mind of citizens and politicians but also to the spirit of our great nation."-Senator Bill Bradley "Read this book to learn more about Paul Tsongas, the courageous budget-balancer of the 1992 campaign."-David Mayhew, author of Divided We Govern "Paul Tsongas is as straightforward in his writings as he was in his deliberations as a U.S. Senator and later as a candidate for President of the United States of America. He represents good old fashioned common sense and has always put his energies where his mouth is."-Lowell P. Weicker, Jr. "A manifesto for third-party success."-Booklist "A deeply meditation on contemporary American politics."-Paul Starobin, LUCE
