New book on Allen West

By on 8.11.08 | 10:30AM

A new book by Richard Berry, A Missing Link in Leadership: The Trial of LTC Allen West, examines the experience of Lt. Col. West in Iraq -- when he was charged with assault for the gunpoint interrogation of a terrorism suspect -- in the context of leadership theory.

CQ rates West's campaign for Congress in Florida's 22nd District as a long shot, because of first-term Democratic Rep. Ron Klein's huge financial advantage. However, West's campaign is now attracting national attention -- including recent coverage from Human Events, the New York Daily News and the New York Sun -- which should help generate fundraising for a candidate who's everything conservative Republicans say they want in Congress. As his campaign manager told me last week, their only concern is that the support might come too late to help.
