For the past 25 years, it seemed like little could impede the quickly accelerating political career of Jesse Jackson Jr., the U.S. Representative for Illinois' 2nd Congressional District and son of iconic civil rights activist Reverend Jesse Jackson. But in just a few short months, the once-promising career of Jesse Jackson Jr. has unraveled amidst investigations by the House ethics committee, speculation about an alleged attempt to buy Barack Obama's Senate seat from Rod Blagojevich, his mysterious medical leave that ultimately revealed his bipolar disorder to the public, and his recent resignation from Congress.

Jesse Jackson Jr. is a collection of the most captivating and revealing articles from the past 25 years of award-winning Chicago Tribune political reporting. With fascinating background on Reverend Jackson and his up-and-down relationship with his son, this book delves the professional and personal lives of Jesse Jackson Jr. It is a straightforward, comprehensive portrait of his many successes and the shocking particulars of his recent scandals.

This book captures and contextualizes Jackson's impressive political career while serving as the best resource for investigative reporting on his ongoing legal, ethical, and health issues.
