Throughout the 1970s and '80s, from Watergate to the Reagan White House, Howard Baker was at the center of American politics. In the first Baker biography ever written, Annis examines Baker's life and work as a conciliator and statesman who could make politics work. The author argues that Baker brought to Washington diplomatic talents and a moderation that are lacking in politics today. Photos.
