Profiles in Courage For Our Time by Caroline Kennedy

Nearly half a century after then-Senator John F. Kennedy was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Profiles in Courage, his masterful portrait of American heroes, the words politician and courage are rarely uttered in the same breath. But, as this celebration of modern political bravery amply demonstrates, there are countless examples of heroism among todays elected officials. Profiles in Courage for Our Time pays tribute to 13 such heroes, each a recipient of the prestigious Profile in Courage award. The essays authors are as noteworthy as their subjects: Anna Quindlen writes about Governor James Florios passing of the strictest gun control law in the nation; Al Hunt details James Feingold and John McCains efforts to reform political finance.
