Turmoil & Triumph: The George Shultz Years

Description

Interviews with senators, former world leaders, journalists and former secretaries of State help paint a picture both of the inner workings of the Reagan White House and one of the president's chief advisers -- Secretary of State George Shultz. Considered one of the most effective secretaries of State in history, Shultz had the respect of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. But in addition to tracing the career of the man, the show offers an insiders' view of some of the most historic issues of the time, including summits with President Mikhail Gorbachev, the Iran-Contra scandal and the "star wars" missile defense program.
