THE GEORGETOWN SET: Friends and Rivals in Cold War Washington
Delivers a fascinating, behind-the-scenes history of postwar Washington: a rich and colorful portrait of the close-knit group of journalists, spies, and government officials who waged the Cold War over cocktails and dinner. From Phil and Kay Graham, publishers of The Washington Post, to Frank Wisner, a driven, manic-depressive lawyer in charge of CIA covert operations, Herken reveals the dedicated and talented yet deeply flawed figures who led America through some of its most perilous years. Photos.
