Review Quotes
PRAISE FORTime Present, Time Past: "Strikingly reflects the realities of modern politics, what it looks like, feels like, from the inside."--The New York Times Book Review "Intelligent, surprisingly candid and exceptionally well written. A love letter to America [by] someone shrewd and knowledgeable about the country."--Vanity Fair "In this impressive memoir, Bradley...uses his memories of life on and off the court, and on and off the Senate floor, as a starting point for discussions of race, immigration, campaign financing, and political integrity.... Bradley is highly readable, thought provoking, and refreshingly honest."--Booklist From the Trade Paperback edition.
