From his entrance into Democratic leadership circles in the 1950s through his years in the Kennedy administration and up until his last days, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., was always at the vital center of American politics. For more than half a century, the master historian recorded his experiences and opinions in journals that together form an intimate chronicle of life at the highest levels of American politics and culture in postwar America. This extraordinary volume contains his candid thoughts about the signal events of our time, from the Bay of Pigs to the devastating assassinations of the 1960s, from Vietnam to Watergate, and from the fall of the Soviet Union to Bush v. Gore. Filled with Schlesinger’s trademark acerbic wit and tremendous insight, Journals is a fitting tribute to a most remarkable American life.
Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. was a Pulitzer Prize–winning historian and biographer. His many books include A Thousand Days: John F. Kennedy in the White House, To Lose a Battle, and The Almanac of American History. He died in 2007.
