    This book describes Carter s entry into politics, and how he helped straighten out the South s politics When Carter began, blacks were heavily discriminated against Rural votes were worth than city votes due to the county votes were awarded The book showed how this changed and what problems remain.

  8. Kerry

    If you want an insiders perspective on Georgia politics this is an interesting one to read Reading of all the corruption that went on in the counties how the politicians did not obey court ordered changes and how much Carter went through to get that first Georgia Senate seat helped me understand how far we have come It s a quick read and definitely worthwhile.

  9. Melyssa

    This book really held my interest even though I knew how President Carter s political fortunes turned out It is hard to believe this kind of voting corruption happened in such recent history This experience helps explain why President Carter has worked to ensure free and fair elections throughout the world.
