The two books in the “Political Science” series (Political Science 101 and Political Science 102) are about two best friends embarking on two different (yet identical) personal and professional journeys.
These novels explore the deep underbelly of the political process, the shattering of idealism, personal sacrifice, personal delusion, and the battle within all people of deciding between what is necessary and what is right – and what is neither, and what is both.
As both men struggle to maintain their morals, their principles, their values, and their friendship, they are challenged by conflicts new and old, small and large, personal and public.
Two close friends, Mitch Bradley and Ray Doyle, best friends since childhood, embark together (but somewhat secretly) into the world of politics. Mitch, a popular (but troubled) Political Science professor and Ray, an ambitious (but naive) civil rights attorney, decide to team-up and make Ray the ideal politician. But along the way, they find out the hard way what Mitch has known for years and what Ray refuses to believe: The way politics actually works.
As the saga of Mitch Bradley and Ray Doyle continues, their friendship falls apart as Ray advances himself deeper into the political arena with the help of his new alliance with an unlikely partner — Lenore Sable. And while Ray deals with the successes and pressures of being a United States Congressman, Mitch finds himself struggling with his own self-image, self-confidence, and self-esteem. The two friends become subtle adversaries as they both battle their own personal demons and seek self-discovery — a journey which leads both men back to where they started: Face-to-face.
