An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
A lecturer at Stanford’s Center for International Security and Cooperation, former journalist Philip Taubman is also the author of several books, including The Partnership: Five Cold Warriors and Their Quest to Ban the Bomb, Secret Empire: Eisenhower, the CIA, and the Hidden Story of America’s Space Espionage, and now In The Nation’s Service: The Life and Times of George P. Shultz. Bob Woodward calls the new book “a masterpiece,” adding that “this biography reminds me of David McCullough’s classic biographies of Presidents John Adams and Harry Truman ― defining and sure-footed in every paragraph.”
Taubman recently discussed In the Nation’s Service with author/attorney Talmage Boston. Listen to the podcast here.
