Synopsis: Ted Van Dyk, a shrewd veteran of countless national political and policy fights, casts fresh light on many of the leading personalities and watershed events of American politics since JFK. He was a Pentagon intelligence analyst during the Berlin Crisis of 1961 and an aide to Jean Monnet and other leaders of the European movement before serving at the Johnson White House as Vice President Humphrey’s senior advisor and alter ego. He was involved in that administration’s Great Society triumphs and its Vietnam tragedy.

In the late 1960s, Van Dyk moved to Columbia University as vice president to help quell campus disorders which threatened the university. Over a period of 35 years he was a senior advisor to presidential candidates Humphrey, McGovern, Carter, Ted Kennedy, Mondale, Hart, and Tsongas; contributed regular essays to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Fortune, and other national publications; and led two national think tanks. In 2001 the Bellingham, Washington, native returned to the Northwest to write a regular editorial-page column for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Van Dyk’s memoirs contain many previously untold stories from an historic period of national politics, portray brilliant and not-so-brilliant leaders and ideas, and also illuminate politics’ darker side. They bring to life the flawed realities and enduring opportunities of public policymaking in our time.

From the Publisher: "Van Dyk uses telling anecdotes to show what it was like to be part of the Humphrey, McGovern, and other liberal Democratic presidential campaigns from 1968 to 1992. Any Democrat who wants to rebuild the party for the future will do well to read this cautionary account. This is one of the best inside political accounts that I have read." - William Rorabaugh, author of Berkeley at War and Kennedy and the Promise of the Sixties

"Van Dyk provides valuable insights into, and newsworthy revelations about, the many important events he's been involved in and the many public figures he has been associated with, and their role in shaping the public policies of the late twentieth century." - Albert Eislele, Editor at Large, The Hill, and press secretary to former Vice President Walter Mondale
