Jimmy Carter was a complex man who from his early years in rural southern Georgia, strove for excellence and ambitiously pursued his personal agenda—from an Annapolis educated naval officer who worked on the early development of the nuclear submarine to a successful small businessman and farmer to a political career that culminated in four years in the White House. One thing that made Jimmy Carter such an interesting and complex person was the unique combination of principles and political ambition that shaped and guided him every step of the way through his life. This book examines the presidency of Jimmy Carter. (Imprint: Nova)
