About the Author:

James A. Baker, III has served in senior government positions under three Presidents: as Under Secretary of Commerce for Gerald Ford, as White House Chief of Staff and Treasury Secretary for Ronald Reagan, and as Secretary of State, White House Chief of Staff, and Senior Counselor for George Bush. Baker has also managed campaigns for the Presidency by all three of these Presidents.

From Library Journal:

Former Secretary of State Baker's memoirs offer an engaging and candid behind-the-scenes look at the conduct of U.S. foreign policy during one of the most tumultuous periods in recent history. The dramatic political convulsions of his tenure?the Tiananmen Square massacre, breakup of the Soviet Union, collapse of the Berlin wall, German reunification, and Iraqi invasion of Kuwait?form the backdrop for Baker's intriguing account of his forays into the vicissitudes of international diplomacy, a tale laced with personal anecdotes and intimate portraits of major world figures. Confusing chronological arrangement and sometimes tedious details may put off some readers, but those who persevere will be well rewarded. Comparable to his predecessor George P. Schultz's Turmoil and Triumph (Scribner's, 1993), Baker's book is a valuable contribution to the literature on contemporary U.S. foreign relations. A welcome addition to both popular and academic collections.
