Product Overview

While much is known about the frontline of politics, little is revealed about the professionals who labor in secret to make the system work. Hired Gun: A Political Odyssey examines how political parties function and how elections are won or lost. This book follows the adventures of one man''s behind-the-scenes political consulting career from local, to state, to national politics. As a political practice, the democratic system remains the most successful form of government in the history of civilization. However, as a profession, politics is still in its youth and riddled with flaws. By offering readers an insider''s perspective, Alex Ray challenges us to draw our own conclusion as to whether or not this country''s method of selecting leaders is current or fair. In today''s political campaigns few decisions are ever as simple as black and white. Hired Gun is an exclusive look at what goes on in the grey.
