In this candid, revealing account, Baker uses his unique perspective to take us inside those events and the personalities involved in them: the collapse of Communism, the Berlin Wall, and the Soviet Union itself; the reunification of Germany; the end of conflict in Central America; the repression in Tiananmen Square; the invasion of Panama; the birth of freedom in South Africa; the remarkable negotiations behind the coalition-building of the Gulf War; and the even more remarkable talks that led Israelis and Arabs to sit down at the same table for the first time after decades of bloody conflict. In the process, Baker gives us unparalleled insights into the sometimes delicate, sometimes rough-and-tumble art - and politics - of diplomacy, and intimate portraits of the leaders whose styles he came to know so well, individuals such as Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Thatcher, Mitterrand, Kohl, Shamir, Mubarak, Assad, Kings Fahd and Hussein, Genscher, Li Peng, the staunchly humanistic Shevardnadze, and Baker's friend and mentor, President George Bush. In all, this is a stunning work, an invaluable addition to the leading chronicles of our time+-+023596448511684ocn034691095book19960.23Rollins, EdBare knuckles and back rooms : my life in American politicsBiographyRollins has worked for almost every major Republican politician of the past two decades, but he was never a member of the Washington aristocracy. Raised in the tough shipyard town of Vallejo, California, he fought as a championship amateur boxer and won over 160 bouts. His love of politics was kindled when he worked for Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign in 1968, but after Kennedy's assassination and a life-changing experience during a violent anti-war demonstration, he joined the Republican party. By 1981, he had worked his way up to a job in the Reagan White House; the following year, he became the president's top political adviser. He has battled at the center of the political arena ever since, and he and his candidates have won far more often than they have lost+-+49721580055192ocn012053748book19850.31Goldman, Peter LouisThe quest for the presidency 19844089ocn179651983rcrd20070.12DeFrank, Thomas MWrite it when I'm gone remarkable off-the-record conversations with Gerald R.

FordBiographyInterviewsIn an extraordinary series of private interviews, conducted over sixteen years with the stipulation that they not be released until after Gerald Ford?s death, the thirty-eighth president of the United States reveals a profoundly different side of himself: funny, reflective, gossipy, strikingly candid?and the stuff of headlines. In 1974, the award-winning journalist and author Thomas DeFrank, then a young correspondent for Newsweek, was interviewing Ford when the Vice President blurted out something astonishingly indiscreet related to the White House, came around his desk, grabbed DeFrank?s tie, and told the reporter he could not leave the room until he promised not to publish it.?Write it when I?m dead,? Ford said?and that agreement formed the basis of their relationship for the next thirty-two years. During that time, they talked frequently, but from 1991 to shortly before Ford?s death in 2006, the interviews became something else?conversations between two men in which Ford talked in a way few presidents ever have. Here is the real Ford on his relationship with Richard Nixon; his experiences serving on the Warren Commission; his complex relationships with Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter; his startling, never-before disclosed discussions with Bill Clinton during the latter?s impeachment process; his opinions about both Bush administrations; and much more. Here, also, are Ford?s unguarded personal musings: about key cultural events; his own life, history, and passions; his beloved wife, Betty; the frustrations of aging. In all, it is an unprecedented audiobook, illuminating, entertaining, surprising, heartwarming, and in several cases, historic+-+356194069622ocn316035445rcrd1995Baker, James AddisonThe politics of diplomacy [revolution, war & peace, 1989-1992]Biography+-+208648879622ocn276629162rcrd19751.00Ford, Gerald RGerald Ford discusses many topics during the 20th news conference11ocn822955676book19800.47Mathews, TomSomber state of the unionHistory11ocn051733899visu20001.00Privacy and the mediaRoundtable debate held Oct. 14, 2000, on individual privacy and the role of the news media, as part of the University of Rochester's sesquicentennial celebration.
