He came from a poor family and worked himself up through law school into the innermost circle of Republican politics. As a Hispanic and a conservative, this unusual combination of culture and political thinking got him noticed and once in the position of Attorney General, the criticism was strong and pointed at almost a betrayal of his heritage because Hispanics were not supposed to be Republican. The author persevered, sticking to his own version of Republic philosophy and in this book, while not totally attempting to explain his decisions and rewrite history with his opinion being right, the author Alberto Gonzalez is in a position to think through the events again and explain to the reader why certain decision were made. Again, many readers may not agree with these decisions and hindsight is always a winner, but this book tells his thoughts and motive during these crucial years. As someone who has disappeared from politics very quickly, this book is an interesting contribution to the discussion of the role law played in these years and what we may be able to learn for the future.
