Summary/Review: Alter tells the story Jimmy Carter, whose presidency put him at the center of major events in the 20th; and his efforts on conflict resolution and global health put him on the cutting edge of the challenges of the 21st. Drawing on fresh archival material and five years of extensive access to Carter and his entire family, Alter traces Carter from a timid, bookish child to an obscure, born-again governor whose 1976 campaign took him from zero percent to the presidency. A stubborn outsider who failed politically amid the bad economy of the 1970s, Carter amassed an historic environmental record, set a new global standard for human rights, and normalized relations with China.
