About the Author

Walter "Fritz" Mondale was active in both Minnesota and national politics throughout his adult life. He served consecutively as Minnesota attorney general, US senator, and US vice president under Jimmy Carter, and was the democratic presidential nominee of 1984. In 1993 he was named US Ambassador to Japan by William Jefferson Clinton. He died in 2021. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Fritz Mondale and I worked side by side in the White House through four intense years of challenges and left office with a friendship that would last a lifetime. We were also able to tell the American people: "We told the truth, we obeyed the law, we kept the peace." This memoir is a compelling history of those years and of the life of the remarkable man I know Fritz to be." -President Jimmy Carter "An illuminating memoir by a notably decent, thoughtful, genuine, likeable and underestimated American leader. Walter Mondale offers a memorable, sometimes surprising account of vanished worlds-a prewar country boyhood, the liberal farmer-labor politics of old Minnesota, a U.S. Senate in which collegiality was not an epithet, with intriguing glimpses of figures like Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Robert Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy-as well as a fresh and revealing look at life with President Jimmy Carter and Mondale's own campaign for the White House. One cannot read this volume without reflecting on how much our political culture has changed, and by no means entirely for the better." -Michael Beschloss "The Good Fight is Walter Mondale's personal story and the story of more than half a century of progressive politics, of its victories and defeats in the search for civil rights, social justice, and economic opportunity for all Americans. Walter Mondale is the best kind of public man - intelligent, honest, hard-working, effective. It's rare to find a man so good and wise who's also funny as can be. Whatever your own politics, if you love your country, you should read this book." -President Bill Clinton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
