My Close Encounters With Nixon, Carter, Bush I, Reagan, and Clinton - and How They Did Not Prepare Me for George W. BushBook - 2006
Robert Scheer's interviews with US presidents, and his profiles of them, have shaped journalism history. Scheer developed close journalistic relationships with Presidents Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton and Bush senior. Here, Scheer offers an unparalleled insight into the presidential mind. Through both new writing and reprinted material, he analyses each American administration since Nixon and, including George W. Bush, offers surprising insights - particularly those with rigid preconceptions about the decision-making process of world leaders.
