A rallying cry "for Democrats who dream about governing and are eager to get their party back on track."―CBS News

In this powerful and provocative manifesto, former senator Gary Hart offers a call to action for Democrats to embrace moral principles and progressive leadership and not to fall back into a pattern of caution and calculation. He urges a return to the principles bequeathed to the party by its great twentieth-century presidents: Franklin D. Roosevelt's commitment to a single national community; Harry S. Truman's security through internationalism; John F. Kennedy's ideal of civic duty and service to the nation; and Lyndon B. Johnson's insistence on equality for all citizens. With the Democrats now in control of Congress, Hart speaks directly and passionately to those who seek to transform this political opportunity into a robust progressive program. As the 2008 presidential election approaches, it is the wake-up call so many Americans have been waiting for.

Book Description:

In this powerful and provocative manifesto, a cri de coeur for Democrats who have grown increasingly frustrated with their party’s leaders, former senator Gary Hart takes the Democrats to task for choosing caution and calculation in place of moral principles. That path, Hart says, will lead only to sorrow—for the party and for the country.
The Courage of Our Convictions is Hart’s call to action—a clear-eyed and plainspoken manifesto that urges a return to the principles bequeathed to the party by its great twentieth-century presidents: Franklin D. Roosevelt’s commitment to a single national community, where no American would be left behind; Harry S. Truman’s internationalism, which preserved democracy after World War II and led eventually to the defeat of communism; John F. Kennedy’s ideal of civic duty and service to the nation; and Lyndon B. Johnson’s insistence on equality for all our citizens.
As the midterm elections approach—and with the 2008 presidential election just over the horizon—Hart speaks directly and passionately to the many Democrats who seek a principled change of leadership in Washington. It is the wake-up call that so many Americans have been waiting for.
