    1 thought on “Prophet from Plains: Jimmy Carter and His Legacy”

    1. Brief, readable review of Jimmy Carter's presidency and post-presidency years. Author is a fan, but admits that Carter's failing is self-righteousness and lack of political savvy. Credits Carter with breakthroughs in peace and human rights.

    2. An interesting look at the legacy of Jimmy Carter, from his troubled one term presidency to his great triumphs as a humanitarian.
