Beschreibung

Glued binding. Paper over boards. xii, [2], 514 p. Illustrations. Index. Barnett "Barney" Frank (born March 31, 1940) is an American politician who served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts from 1981 to 2013. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as chairman of the House Financial Services Committee (2007 2011) and was a leading co-sponsor of the 2010 Dodd Frank Act, a sweeping reform of the U.S. financial industry. Frank, a resident of Newton, Massachusetts, is considered the most prominent gay politician in the United States. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1980. He was re-elected every term thereafter by wide margins. In 1987, he publicly came out as gay, after coming out to family, friends and close associates a few years prior, becoming the first member of Congress to do so voluntarily. From 2003 until his retirement, Frank was the leading Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, and he served as committee chairman when his party held a House majority from 2007 to 2011. Good in very good dust jacket. Signed by author. Slightly cocked. Inscribed by author on t-p. Also signed by Barney Frank!. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 71555

Book by Stuart Weisberg

Críticas:

"Barney Frank is a masterful legislator and one of the great political minds of our generation. His style - principled but pragmatic, tenacious yet fair, and always brilliant and funny - has won him the respect of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Stuart Weisberg's lively biography of Barney Frank documents all of these extraordinary qualities, and the many ways in which he enriches our democracy." - Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives "Barney Frank is one of the most brilliant, effective - and funny - lawmakers of his generation. Not many Congressmen are worthy of a book, but Stuart Weisberg's carefully researched and authoritative account proves that Barney's life and career are indeed the stuff of fine biography." - Cokie Roberts, ABC News political commentator, and Steven V. Roberts, Shapiro Professor of Media and Public Affairs, George Washington University"
