How the media's neive attitutes can weaken a country in crisis
Interesting concept: Drury has two endings--each a full-length novel--conclusion to his Advise and Consent series. The other, The Promise Of Joy, takes exactly the same set up, at the end of Preserve And Protect; A Novel--a bomb explosion at the rally for a unity presidential ticket--and runs out the possibility that the soft, liberal candidate survives. Judging by the title and the tone of Drury's writing, you don't have to read the book to know how it turns out.

It was okay.

Last (one of two) ending to the "Advise and Consent" series.
