From two of America's most revered political journalists comes the definitive biography of legendary White House chief of staff and secretary of state James A. Baker III. For a quarter-century, from the end of Watergate to the aftermath of the Cold War, no Republican won the presidency without his help or ran the White House without his advice. Baker understood better than anyone how to make Washington work at a time when America was shaping events around the world. “The Man Who Ran Washington” is a page-turning portrait of a power broker who influenced America's destiny for generations.
