Synopsis: A biography of Ronald Reagan's CIA director reveals the history of the man at the center of Reagan's foreign policy, tracing his journey from poverty to wealth, power and scandal

From Library Journal: William J. Casey, a central figure in the World War II spy operations of CIA precursor OSS, had a successful career as a tax lawyer and inventor of the tax shelter, as chair of the Securities & Exchange Commission, and as Reagan's campaign manager. Had it not been for the Iran-Contra scandal, Casey's tenure as CIA director might have been masterful. In this authorized biography, Persico challenges Bob Woodward's rather harsh interpretation of Casey in Veil ( LJ 12/87), especially criticizing Woodward's covert visit to Casey's hospital bedside. Persico finds the roots of Casey's life in his Queens, New York childhood, his OSS work, and his hero, OSS head "Wild Bill" Donovan. While still not the definitive biography of Casey only time can produce, this book will appeal to readers of Woodward's book. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90.
