About this title

Synopsis:

The democratic party's most eloquent statesman in a triumph of heart, mind and voice.

With the unmistakable fire that has lit up Democratic thinking for more than a decade, Mario Cuomo delivers Reason to Believe -- a vivid rebuke to the radical Republicans running riot in Washington, and a clear-eyed, common sense assessment of "where we are, where we're going, and what we should do about it."

Forthright in confessing his party's own failings, Cuomo is remorseless in dismantling the opposition, using the floodlight of his clear prose to reveal the evasion and show the inadequacy of the now-famous, celebrated Contract with America. In its place, he offers a hopeful vision of what we the people might achieve if we can only learn to remember that "we're all in this together."

Written with a depth of understanding drawn from twenty years of daily involvement with local, state and federal government and six decades as th! e American son of quintessential immigrants, Reason to Believe is Cuomo's tribute to the uncompromising wisdom of people like his parents and the parents of his wife, Matilda, seekers and believers who taught him the lesson America needs so badly now: "that what is right is usually also what is necessary; that in helping one another we almost always help ourselves."

From the Back Cover:

As an alternative to the Republican agenda, Cuomo presents a mandate for fulfilling America's potential to be the greatest and most compassionate nation on earth. If we are to overcome our cynicism, reinvent government, and find a new language for discussing our future, we must look to each other. We must "reconcile our profound instinct for individualism with our inescapable need for a sense of community". For those who long for a voice that rises above the petty political squabbles over gasoline taxes, the minimum wage, and same-sex marriages, Cuomo's Reason to Believe revives our faith, restores our vision, and inspires our hope for America's future.
