Allen Drury’s recommend and Consent is likely one of the excessive issues of twentieth Century literature, a seminal paintings of political fiction—as proper this day as while it used to be first released. A sweeping story of corruption and ambition cuts around the panorama of Washington, DC, with the breadth and realism that simply an astute observer and insider can convey.

Allen Drury has penetrated the world’s stormiest political battleground—the smoke-filled committee rooms of the U.S. Senate—to demonstrate the sour conflicts set in movement while the President calls upon the Senate to verify his arguable selection for Secretary of nation. This novel is a real epic displaying in attention-grabbing element the minds and factors of the statesmen, the opportunists, the idealists.

From a Senate old-timer’s wily maneuvers, a vicious demagogue’s blistering smear crusade, the gruesome own jealousies that flip a hugely certified candidate right into a public spectacle, to the tragic martyrdom of a presidential aspirant who refuses to sacrifice his ideas for his career—never has there been a extra revealing photo of Washington’s complicated political, diplomatic, and social worlds. propose and Consent is a undying tale with transparent echoes of today’s headlines.

Includes Allen Drury’s never-before-published unique preface to suggest and Consent, his essay for the Hoover establishment at the writing of the e-book, in addition to poignant own memoirs from Drury’s heirs.
