His ambition since his youth has been to be nothing less than the nation's moral evangel, the American Gandhi. But as he courses deliberately through American politics he has continued to be misperceived as simply a political being. In Jesse: The Life and Pilgrimage of Jesse Jackson, Marshall Frady writers with brilliant insight and understanding of the forces shaping this unique American character, and uncloaks the Jackson enigma. Over the last seven years, Frady has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles with Jackson in the United States and abroad and has had unparalleled access to his entire family, especially his wife, Jackie, a vivid and outspoken character in her own right, and his friends and associates of the last half century. He has explored the mystery of this tumultuaously mixed man; Jesse is a biography of singular power.
