About the Book

History has produced many individuals who have impacted the times. Some are well known, others barely recognized. My book follows two paths. One examines officeholders who served between 1960 and 1988, famous or obscure, whose actions gave way to an even more famous person's career. Others are Governors credited with shaping the modern developments of their home states.

A number of my subjects are as scrupulous as can be. Others got sidelined by scandals one can't even make up. As for the rest. Well, let's just say they have a great story that few know, but deserve to be told.

My book shares more than 150 stories of politicians, elections, and the environment of the period. Each of my 150 subjects is accompanied by a tidbit/anomaly that will enlighten all. Many are unsung outside their home states. Hopefully, my book will change that.

About the Author

The author’s first word could easily have been “politics.” Scott Crass’s passion for politics may have been fueled by his first book on U.S. presidents, given to him by his mother, Madeline, at the ripe young age of 5. He quickly wore out the pages, prompting his mother to buy a replacement. Scott has been a devoted student of Presidential and Congressional politics ever since. Scott obtained his B.A. in Political Science and Communications from Monmouth University in Long Branch, N.J., and achieved his M.A. in Counseling at the same institution. A New Jersey native, Scott has always been drawn to his beloved Jersey Shore, where he enjoys spending much of his free time. Besides politics and the Shore, Scott is a fan of music of all kinds, including oldies, swing, Strauss waltzes and the sounds of another Jersey treasure, Frank Sinatra. He lives in South Brunswick, N.J and thrives by a personal motto, “Failure is only our enemy if it does not serve as our guide.”
