The #1 New York Times bestseller and Pulitzer Prize winner

Allen Drurys Advise and Consent is one of the high points of 20th Century literature, a seminal work of political fiction--as relevant today as when it was first published. A sweeping tale of corruption and ambition cuts across the landscape of Washington, DC, with the breadth and realism that only an astute observer and insider can convey.

Allen Drury has penetrated the worlds stormiest political battleground--the smoke-filled committee rooms of the United States Senate--to reveal the bitter conflicts set in motion when the President calls upon the Senate to confirm his controversial choice for Secretary of State. This novel is a true epic showing in fascinating detail the minds and motives of the statesmen, the opportunists, the idealists.

From a Senate old-timers wily maneuvers, a vicious demagogues blistering smear campaign, the ugly personal jealousies that turn a highly qualified candidate into a public spectacle, to the tragic martyrdom of a presidential aspirant who refuses to sacrifice his principles for his career--never has there been a more revealing picture of Washingtons intricate political, diplomatic, and social worlds. Advise and Consent is a timeless story with clear echoes of todays headlines.

Includes Allen Drurys never-before-published original preface to Advise and Consent, his essay for the Hoover Institution on the writing of the book, as well as poignant personal memoirs from Drurys heirs.
