Description

This book examines the career and influence of the prominent journalist Joseph Alsop, who made his professional debut in 1932 and continued writing into the 1980s. Using his personal papers, pertinent documents, oral histories, and interviews, the author traces the evolution of Alsop's foreign policy views and discusses his interaction with Washington D.C.'s decision-making elite. This book reveals that although Alsop was clearly used by the Roosevelt, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations, he also exercised significant influence on these leaders.
