The grandson of former Vice-President Adlai E. Stevenson, Adlai E. Stevenson II came from a distinguished family in Illinois and was well known as a gifted orator, intellectual, and political moderate. In writing A Prophet in His Own Word, biographer Kenneth Davis was given access to Stevenson's personal diary and spent hours on his subject's farm speaking to him and his close associates, past and present. In this definitive biography, none of the major influences on Stevenson's developing character have been overlooked, setting down a brilliant picture of the man who, though twice defeated for the presidency, had a truly great influence on American policy.
