The Age of the American Presidency. What Will 2016 Bring?
No journalist or author has uncovered more secrets or probed deeper into the modern American presidency and Washington than Bob Woodward. The 2016 presidential election will be a critical pivot point in the well-being of the nation, its national security and economy. In his 18 bestselling books, Woodward has written in depth about the last eight presidents and Washington power centers from the Supreme Court to the CIA and Congress. He now explains what went wrong and what worked. He then distils out what lessons voters might expect – and demand – from the next president.
War and Terrorism – What Are The Lessons For America?
Nothing defines the nation to the world – and to itself – as much as war. Bob Woodward has written seven books on the wars and foreign policy of the two Bushes, Reagan and Obama — beginning with The Commanders in 1991 on the first Gulf War, Veil: the Secret Wars of the CIA under Reagan, four books on President George W. Bush’s wars (Bush at War, Plan of Attack, State of Denial, and The War Within) and Obama’s Wars in 2010.
Has Washington Forgotten The Lessons Of Watergate?
Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s work uncovering the Watergate scandal was called “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time” by Gene Roberts, then managing editor of The New York Times. It earned them the Pulitzer Prize. Years after the revelations of Watergate that led to President Nixon’s resignation still cast a long shadow. Its lessons about secret government stand as warning signs to future presidents.
