What follows is an anecdotal history of the crisis as it developes: the missions, the hostage releases, the arms shipments, and finally the astonishing revelation of a possible diversion of funds to the Contras in Central America. We are present when Attorney General Edwin Meese tells the President and Regan of this discovery; and we are with Regan the following morning, when he confronts Vice Admiral John Poindexter. Finally we are with Regan when he is forced into tending his resignation by factions in the White House that sought to make him the scapegoat for the Iran-Contra debacle. Provides an insider's account of the way in whcih Ronald Reagan conducts his Presidency: his work habits, his way of thinking, his decision-making-and, always, the people including the First Lady and others, who influence him, Regan describes how, as Secretary of the Treasury, he helped revolutionize U.S. economic policy. He reconstructs his two years as Chief of Staff-and presents a vivid picture of Reagan's visit to Bitburg and of the superpower summits with Gorbachev.Edition: First edition
