think.kera.org 5

Though never elected to any office, James Baker III spent decades shaping policy and politicians. Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for The New York Times, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about Baker’s close and competitive friendship with George H.W. Bush – and about his diplomatic work that reshaped the world in the last quarter of the 20th Century. Peter Baker’s new book, co-written with Susan Glasser, is “The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III.”
