By Richard Nixon, 1982
Richard Nixon knew virtually every major foreign leader since World War II. His was an unparalleled opportunity to gain insight into the nature of the powerful and qualities of leadership. In Leaders, he illustrates these world leaders in private, assesses their careers, recalls words of wisdom, and brings to bear his own judgments. We meet the co-architects of the New Japan, Douglas MacArthur and Shigeru Yoshida. Encountering the legendary leaders of China – Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, and Chiang Kai-shek – we see the men behind the events. We see the intensely private Charles DeGaulle; explore the philosophies of Konraud Adenauer; confront Leonid Brezhnev; and delight in the company of Winston Churchill – not to mention Nixon's analyses of interactions with dozens of other leaders.
No one but Richard Nixon could have written this book. This limited edition copy was published by the Richard Nixon Foundation to celebrate the President's legacy.
