Raising Cain: The Life and Politics of Senator Harry P. Cain (Paperback)
Decades ago, Harry Cain warned, "It is possible to become so safe that nobody can be free."
Still the conflict rages on between individual freedom and national security. C. Mark Smith's
Raising Cain profiles a complex and controversial public servant who remained true to one
goal supporting the rights of the individual. Cain opposed the internment of Japanese American
citizens during World War II, defended provocative figures as a U.S. Senator, worked for civil
rights in Florida, and in the controversy that destroyed his public career, defied his president and
his party to protect the freedom of thousands of Americans threatened during the McCarthy era.
