The inspiring story of Governor Ralph Carr and his fight for Japanese-American rights. Mr. Schrager's resonant voice would hold one's interest on any topic, but his presentation and his words were most important and captivating. He began his speech by quoting Gov. Carr: "Never speak beyond the bladder capacity of your audience. The hour long talk extended to a question and answer period. None would admit that bladders were about to burst, but none would leave before the presentation was ended.

The Principled Politician book. The inspiring story of Governor Ralph Carr and his fight. and a troubling period of our history. The upsetting thing in reading this is how much the rhetoric surrounding Japanese internment sounds like the anti-immigration and anti-Muslim rhetoric today. I hope many people read this book and think about that-we haven't come as far as a soc 1/2. Highly recommended to anyone interested in Colorado and civil rights history.

In June/08, I was privileged to hear a speech presented to our family by Adam Schrager. The topic was his book: The Principled Politician - The Ralph Carr Story. Mr. Schrager's resonant voice would hold one's interest on any topic, but his presentation and his words were most important and captivating. He began his speech by quoting Gov. Carr:
"Never speak beyond the bladder capacity of your audience." The hour long talk extended to a question and answer period. None would admit that bladders were about to burst, but none would leave before the presentation was ended.

We bought all the books available to us that day.

The Principled Politician is a thoroughly researched, objectively written, long overdue book. Often, insincere plaudits are heaped upon deceased persons, most especially on noted politicians, but Schrager tells a different story. "Principled" is an accurate description of Ralph Carr, Governor of CO from 1939 to 1943. His entire life and political career were guided by sound moral principles from which he never backed down. Mr. Schrager convinces the reader of the truth behind the character label by revealing hundreds of facts, incidents, and quotations seldom or never before stated in complete form.

We learn about Mr. Carr's early life in the mining villages of CO and his days studying law at the Univ of CO, but the emphasis of the book is on the years he served as CO's Gov - the WW2 years when most all politicians and most of the country denounced "yellow bellied Japs" in the US. Carr stood virtually alone in voicing the rights and the honor of the Japanese in America. When evacuation and incarceration of all Japanese - non-citizens and native born US citizens alike - living on the west coast, were ordered, Carr did not "invite" the Japanese to CO, but he "welcomed" them, unlike any other politician in all the states. Concentration camps were not welcomed in any state or neighborhood even though decreed by the US gov't and guarded behind barbed wire. Carr listened to his inner voice, heeded his principles and followed gov't rules and demands with a sincere welcome to the "dirty Japs."

Carr's vociferous opponents and the anti-Carr press were overwhelmingly in the majority. His civil rights stance and friendliness to the Japanese in America assured his defeat for a run in the US senate. Nevertheless, he never caved in.

Japanese Americans owe much to this incredible man. In reality, all Americans benefited by his courage and stubborn defiance of what he knew was wrong. Some say we need politicians like him today. The truth is, we ALWAYS need politicians like Ralph Carr.

Thanks to Mr. Adam Schrager to whom we also owe much. I believe, he, like Mr. Carr, is a principled man. Six years of his life were devoted to the research and writing of this book.

This is a well researched and written book that captures both the bigotry and nobleness of Coloradoans' response to Japanese during WWII. It also reveals politics in a simplier, more personal time when common folks felt that they had access to the highest levels of power and were engaged enough to try to shape policy. In addition, the struggles around Federalism seem timely and Carr's defense of States' rights would appeal to many today. This is a must read for anyone interested in Colorado history, Japanese internment during WWII or anyone interested in seeing politicians in a positive light!

Being familiar with the author as he was political analyst for KUSA -TV here in Denver, CO at the time he wrote this book, I emailed him and told him I was very intrigued and anxious to read this. Having lost touch, since he moved on and having forgotten the title I emailed KUSA and they gave me the title - so I bought the book. And as I said it is very thought provoking and hard to imagine that we as nation allowed this. I lived during that time, though I was unaware of Ralph Carr, I am very glad to have the opportunity to read about this.

An excellent book about Colorado political history which also takes in national politics, and the story of a great man who stood up for righteousness even though, in fighting all the prejudice around him, it meant he would not be re-elected. It is a shining example of what a politician should be, although sadly, there aren't many like him in this day and age. It should be mandatory reading for everyone who seeks a political office!
Galubel
A great book about a great man. A sadly too little told tale, and this brave politician simply refused to be, well, a politician, and did the right thing. [An aside, he is a Republican. FDR and Earl Warren - the authors of the internment - archetypical social Democrats. What the Left gets wrong about the Internment is that the moral lesson taught is that it was all about Redress, and the associated apology; and since they attribute Redress to the 1960's Left movements, it is this that gets the huzzah. (And that Reagan was forced to write the checks). I am not going to say Redress was wrong, of course, but let's not forget that the REAL wrong was the internment in the first place - go and have your kids look at one of the 'Instructions to Persons of Japanese Ancestry' and see how they would react to such today - Freedom first!].

Even as a Colorado native, I didn't know much about Japanese internment in our state or Ralph Carr. This well-written and well researched book was a great insight to an unsung hero. He defended Japanese American citizens in a time when that stance wasn't popular. I truly enjoyed reading this.

Great!
It was an excellent biography of a too long fogotten great Colorado governor. I think it helped name the name the new Colorado Justice building after him.Adam Schrager did a great job.
