About this title


One of Washington's key insiders, once the White House Chief of Protocol, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Reagan White House

From Library Journal:

In this memoir, Roosevelt, Chief of Protocol during the Reagan administration, chronicles her life before and during her years of governmental service. This is not a book for students of international relations or for those seeking new "backstairs" gossip about figures in the Reagan White House. But the book will be useful to general readers who wish to gain an understanding of what protocol is, what a White House Chief of Protocol does, and how the forms of protocol affect and relate to other aspects of diplomacy. Roosevelt discusses these topics with clarity and wit. Recommended for public libraries.
