This volume presents significant phases in the life of
twelve American public figures, based on their Pulitzer
Prize-decorated autobiographical works. There are, for
example, memories of the Aviator Charles Lindbergh about the
final phases of his first nonstop Transatlantic flight to
Paris; Washington Post Publisher Katharine Graham tells the
dramatic story of the newspaper’s coverage of the Watergate
Affair; Statesman Dean Acheson reflects his feelings during
the early days of the Korean War; Novelist Norman Mailer
remembers of his participation at the Anti- Vietnam War
Demonstrations in Washington, D.C., while Diplomat George
Kennan describes his various activities in Postwar Germany.
