From the Publisher"In a strong new book, the ex-president recalls dangerous days...It should leave little doubt how lucky we were that we had such a seasoned hand on the tiller at a time when foreign policy really counted."
--Michael R. Beschloss, Newsweek
"Among the finest expositions of modern American foreign policy since the time of Harry
Truman...An excellent book...unique in form...[dealing with] potentially explosive crises. Any one of them, if badly managed, could have precipitated a third world war in a nuclear setting."
--Eugene V. Rostow, Wall Street Journal
"It reveals a wealth of detail about the main lines of U.S. foreign policy at the highest level during a most portentous period of our history...There is much high drama here [and] plenty even for experts to learn."
--Adam Garfinkle, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A memorable memoir...A compelling look at some very important historical developments...Remarkably candid as well as occasionally self-critical...Supplemented with a series of revealing and heretofore unpublished excerpts from Bush's White House diaries."
--Richard S. Dunham, Business Week
"The most important book yet written about the end of the Cold War...Remarkably frank, intelligent and also readable, indeed at times gripping."
--Fareed Zakaria, New York Times Book Review
