Description

From Eugene McCarthy to Henry Kissinger to each sitting president since Lyndon Johnson, David Mixner has advised every major political leader of our time and his influence has shaped the politics of this generation. Today, David Mixner is considered one of the most influential voices in American politics. He has earned the respect of the nation's most prominent policy-makers and inspired the rage of those to whom he has refused to defer. Mixner's story is not only a chronicle of one man's profound influence on many of the major human rights movements of our time. It's about what it means to be American: standing up for what you believe and believing you can make a difference.But Mixner's achievements have not come without cost to his personal life. In these pages, he writes with brutal honesty about how he felt compelled to hide his homosexuality from his colleagues, and their cool response to his coming out.show more
