Summary
"True Faith and Allegiance is the highly-anticipated personal history from Alberto R. Gonzales, former Attorney General of the United States and former Counsel to the President--the only lawyer and only Hispanic to hold both these positions--an ultimate insider in the most tumultuous events in recent history. Born to a poor but proud working-class family in Humble, Texas, Gonzales was raised along with his seven siblings in a modest 2-bedroom home. His loving and devout parents taught him the conservative values of hard work and accountability that motivated Gonzales to the highest echelons of power. He was a confidante to President George W. Bush during the crucible of the 9/11 attacks, and he played a vital role in the administration's immediate response to protect America and the far-reaching steps to prevent further harm"--
Summary
A portrait by the former Attorney General describes his role in advising George W. Bush's administration and offers additional insights into his family life, faith, and commitment to the Hispanic community
