How to Get Into Politics and Why
What motivates people to get into politics?
This is the question that How to Get Into Politics—and Why, by Michael Dukakis and Paul Simon, attempts to answer. Michael Dukakis and Paul Simon outline a comprehensive plan to get involved in the political process and share the political narratives of twenty-two distinguished men and women.
Included in the collection are essays by politicians such as Mario Cuomo, Elizabeth Dole, Phil Gramm, and Sandra Day O’ Connor.
This collection not only offers unique insights into the political life but is also ideal for language arts classes studying the personal narrative genre.
