For more than fifty years Jack Anderson has been seen as a crusader against corruption. His columns exposing fraud, waste, and abuse have shocked the world, and he has become one of the most respected reporters of all time. In Peace, War, and Politics, Anderson gives us a through-the-keyhole look at the personal side of many of our countrys most controversial figures. Anderson relates countless anecdotes; some are colourful, some poignant, some funny, some shocking, but all capture the behind-the-scenes story of some of the most important scandals in recent history. Anderson recounts how he uncovered the truth about the Kennedy assassination, searched for Nazis in South America, broke the Savings and Loan scandal, discovered the Iran arms for hostages scandal, and revealed the mystery of Howard Hughess death. Peace, War, and Politics also includes incredible personal accounts of such towering figures as: Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, J. Edgar Hoover, Robert Redford, John Lennon, Fidel Castro, Jackie Onassis, Boris Yeltsin, Jimmy Carter, George Bush, and many more. Jack Anderson tells the full truth about his part in history. For five decades, from the Cold War paranoia that produced Senator Joe McCarthy, a onetime friend who Jack Anderson had to expose as a liar and hatemonger, to Richard Nixon, whose goon squad plotted to neutralize Anderson, generals, CEOs, and presidents have asked themselves, What would happen if Jack found out?
