An Independent Man. Adventures of a Public Servant. By James M. Jeffords. With Yvonne Daley and Howard Coffin. My decision to become an Independent was prompted by that sense of public responsibility, something I've been trying to explain to folks ever since I made it. I'm sure it was growing up in Vermont, where my father was the chief justice of the Vermont Supreme Court and so many of our family friends were in public service, that brought me to this understanding. I was born in Rutland.

comOne of the unintended consequences of this memoir by Vermont senator James Jeffords is a blunt reminder that the tides of history are relentless. While its narrative wends inexorably towards Jeffords's courageous defection from the GOP in May 2001 (a move that denied Republicans control of the Senate and threatened the conservative agenda of the George W. Bush administration), that drama was ultimately undercut by the midterm elections of '02, which unexpectedly threw control of both houses of Congress to the Vermont senator's

Senator Jim Jeffords's disarmingly frank memoir recounts his idyllic small-town childhood in Rutland, Vermont, his somewhat unruly adolescence, putting himself through Yale University with the help of NROTC, traveling the world during his three-year navy service, and his courtship of Elizabeth Daley when he was a Harvard Law School student.In his first term as Vermont state senator, he supported welfare bills and environmental protection. As Vermont's attorney general, he helped draft and then implement some of the most important legislation in the nation - the bottle bill, ban on billboards, and land protection.When he was elected to the House of Representatives, he was so broke that he lived in his office. During his congressional years, Jeffords concerned himself with issues of education, energy, and dairy farming. He was the only Republican to vote against Ronald Reagan's budget. He supported Bill Clinton's Health Care Reform and opposed his impeachment. Jeffords's disagreements with the second Bush administration and the Republican leadership led to his decision to leave the party. In My Declaration of Independence, Jeffords wrote about his decision to quit the Republican Party. Now, in this memoir, he tells us more about who he is and what he believes in and what led him to that decision.He concludes with a section on how we must rebuild America after September 11 and why we must improve our education system.
