Arthur Schlesinger Jr.: Journals 1952-2000

Be the first to review this product

Arthur Schlesinger Jr. stood at the heart of post-war American political and cultural life - he knew most of the prominent political, cultural, and intellectual figures of the last fifty years. As these journals demonstrate, he was a master historian who enjoyed an extraordinary eyewitness vantage on history as it was being made. Frank, revelatory, suffused with wit and humanity, Arthur Schlesinger Jr's never-before-seen journals offer an intimate history of post-war America, from his days on Adlai Stevenson's campaign team to his years in JFK and RFK's inner circle, through to the election of George W. Bush. They contain candid reminiscences of the defining events of our time - including the Bay of Pigs, the devastating assassinations of the 1960s, Vietnam, Watergate, the fall of the Soviet Union, and Bush v Gore. They also offer an extraordinary window into the lives of the remarkable range of politicians, intellectuals, writers, and actors who were his friends - from the Kennedys to Kissinger and the Clintons, from Norman Mailer to Lauren Bacall and Marilyn Monroe. Together Schlesinger's journals form an astonishingly vivid portrait of American politics and culture in the second half of the twentieth century - one that only a man who knew everyone, and missed nothing, could provide.
