Covington Jr., captures the life of Albert Coates (1896–1989), the founder and first director of the Institute. At the same time, the book depicts a transformative era in the history of the University of North Carolina. Covington's account portrays Coates as both a genius of striking originality as well as a man exasperatingly insistent on getting his way. "Great figures that stride through Coates's life include novelist Thomas Wolfe, US senators Frank Graham and Sam Ervin Jr., FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, and all North Carolina governors from Locke Craig to Terry Sanford," says School of Government Dean Mike Smith. The book is available from UNC Press at www.uncpress.unc.edu. $e Good Government Man you TELL US WHAT THINK
