Stay of execution; a sort of memoir by Stewart Alsop( Book )

14 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A poignant memoir of a full life and an impending death, written by one of America's foremost journalists during his battle with terminal cancer. For three decades, from the end of World War II well into the Watergate era, internationally renowned newspaper and magazine columnist Stewart Alsop was a fixture on the Washington, DC, political landscape. In 1971, the respected journalist was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, marking the beginning of his courageous three-year battle with the terrible cancer that ravaged his body but could not damage his spirit or slow his facile and brilliantly incisive mind. A passionate social critic and peerless political analyst who hobnobbed with presidents from FDR to Nixon, and enjoyed the respectful fellowship of such notable figures as Winston Churchill, Alice Roosevelt Longworth, and Henry Kissinger, Alsop insightfully chronicles the course of his medical history without a trace of maudlin self-pity while celebrating his family, friends, colleagues, and an extraordinary life well lived. Stay of Execution is Stewart Alsop's moving, powerful, and inspiring memoir of his terminal illness and his life before-an unforgettable true story of courage and accomplishment, trials and tragedy from one of the most revered American journalists of the twentieth century

Sub rosa; the O.-S.-S. and American espionage by Stewart Alsop( Book )

13 editions published between 1946 and 2016 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thrilling history of the Office of Strategic Services, America's precursor to the CIA, and its secret operations behind enemy lines during World War II. Born in the fires of the Second World War, the Office of Strategic Services, or OSS, was the brainchild of legendary US Maj. Gen. William "Wild Bill" Donovan, designed to provide covert aid to resistance fighters in European nations occupied by Germany's Nazi aggressors. Paratroopers Stewart Alsop and Thomas Braden-both of whom would become important political columnists in postwar years-became part of Wild Bill's able collection of soldiers, spies, and covert operatives. Sub Rosa is an enthralling insider's history of the remarkable intelligence operation that gave birth to the CIA. In Sub Rosa, Alsop and Braden take readers on a breathtaking journey through the birth and development of the top secret wartime espionage organization and detail many of the extraordinary OSS missions in France, Germany, Dakar and Casablanca in North Africa, and in the jungles of Burma that helped to hasten the end of the Japanese Empire and the fall of Adolf Hitler's powerful Reich. As exciting as any international thriller written by Eric Ambler or Graham Greene, Alsop and Braden's Sub Rosa is an indispensable addition to the literary history of American espionage and intelligence
Nixon & Rockefeller : a double portrait by Stewart Alsop( Book )

16 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fascinating analysis of two of the most important figures in 1960s American politics, written during their battle for the GOP presidential nomination. Richard Milhous Nixon was one of the most controversial politicians in America's history: a California congressman, senator, vice president, and president who was forced to resign his position as US Chief Executive because of his role in the scandalous Watergate affair. Nelson Rockefeller was the scion of a phenomenally wealthy American family and longtime governor of New York State. In 1960 they were the leading contenders to win the Republican Party's nomination for president of the United States, one of whom would face the Democratic challenger, Senator John F. Kennedy, in November's general election. Written by acclaimed journalist Stewart Alsop during the heat of the political race to the Republican Convention, Nixon & Rockefeller provides a revealing, often surprising dual portrait of two giants of twentieth-century American politics. Alsop, an acknowledged Washington, DC, insider and one of the most esteemed political analysts of his era, explores the backgrounds, mindsets, and distinct personalities, as well as the strengths and failings of these two candidates vying for the highest office in the country. The author's intelligent and insightful views on the nature of a Nixon presidency versus a Rockefeller presidency make for fascinating reading in light of the political outcome that ultimately was and one that might have been

A portrait of Washington politics during one of the most turbulent eras in American history by the twentieth century's premier US government insider. During his three decades as a journalist and political pundit for the New York Herald Tribune and Newsweek magazine, Stewart Alsop covered many of the defining historical events of mid-to-late twentieth-century America, from the post-World War II boom and the Red Scare to the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban missile crisis, the Kennedy assassination, and the Vietnam War. In The Center, Alsop provides a perceptive, provocative, and marvelously erudite insider's view of the American political landscape of the 1960s, reporting from the beating heart of Washington, DC, the power center of the Western world. With an unblinking eye and razor-sharp intellect, Alsop cogently explores an arena of unbridled political power and influence that spans from the White House to Capitol Hill to the Supreme Court. He offers remarkable insights into the motivations and very human foibles of the key figures behind some of the century's most momentous events: Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and Secretary of State Dean Rusk, CIA Director Richard Helms and Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas, among many others. The Center is a must-read for anyone interested in American politics and how the system got us to where we are today
