James T. Fisher is Danforth Chair in Humanities at Saint Louis University.
This is a quite extraordinary work, one which will be of great interest to historians of American religion, popular culture, and the Vietnam war. A first-rate and important biography.--Maurice Isserman, Hamilton College This is no ordinary biography. Where others might settle for background 'color' or superficial 'context' Fisher has the skill and knowledge to provide a searching exploration of an entire history. And this history -- the early years of the Cold War -- was fundamental not only in shaping Dooley's many lives, but the last half century of global affairs.--Christian G. Appy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
