Special Relationships: A Foreign Correspondent's Memoirs From Roosevelt To Reagan
Special Relationships: A Foreign Correspondent's Memoirs From Roosevelt To Reagan
By Henry Brandon
Atheneum, 1989, 436 pp

The author was the Washington correspondent for The Sunday Times of London for 40 years, one of the most perceptive and best connected of journalists. His memoirs are a delight, full of illuminating anecdotes and astute assessments of American leaders. Dean Acheson was his favorite. His evaluation of Presidents Carter and Reagan, with which the book ends, are critical but fair.
