Summary
From acclaimed historian Richard Norton Smith comes the first complete biography of an American icon: Nelson Rockefeller--one of the most complex and compelling figures of the twentieth century. In On His Own Terms, fourteen years in the making, Smith draws on thousands of newly available documents and some two hundred interviews, including his subject's own unpublished reminiscences. Grandson of oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, Nelson coveted the White House from childhood. "When you think of what I had," he once remarked, "what else was there to aspire to?" Before he was thirty he had helped his father develop Rockefeller Center and his mother establish the Museum of Modern Art. At thirty-two he was Franklin Roosevelt's wartime coordinator for Latin America. As New York's four-term governor he set national standards in education, the environment, and urban policy. The charismatic face of liberal Republicanism, Rockefeller championed civil rights and health insurance for all. Three times he sought the presidency--arguably in the wrong party. At the Republican National Convention in San Francisco in 1964, locked in an epic battle with Barry Goldwater, Rockefeller denounced extremist elements in the GOP. But he could not wrest the nomination from the Arizona conservative--or from Richard Nixon four years later. In the end, he had to settle for two dispiriting years as vice president under Gerald Ford
