Über diesen Titel
For four decades, Brandon was the London Sunday Times's correspondent in Washington, D.C. He became the most influential foreign correspondent in the capital, breaking many of the biggest stories himself. This is a splendid memoir of his special relationships with such figures as Kissinger and Kennedy.From Publishers Weekly:
Brandon ( The Retreat of American Power ) here recalls close friendships, working relationships and occasional hostile contacts that marked his 40 years as a Washington correspondent, mostly for London's Sunday Times. His portraits of Truman, Acheson, De Gaulle, Macmillan, Kennedy and Nixon, among others, are incisive. He also offers trenchant observations ("Americans need to be scared out of their wits to shoulder the burdens of their destiny") and a benevolent appraisal of Washington, D.C., as a cultural world capital. He tells us that he was in Cuba when Soviet missiles arrived there, was lunching with Richard Helms when the CIA chief first heard of the Watergate burglary. His best passages include an illuminating discourse on Henry Kissinger's character and achievements, along with what may be the pithiest synopsis yet of the Reagan presidency. Photos.
