Robert Scheer's interviews with U.S. Presidents, and his profiles of them, have shaped journalism history. Scheer developed close journalistic relationships with Presidents Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and Bush I. His reporting on them had a tangible impact on national debate -- such as the eminent 1976 Playboy interview in which Jimmy Carter, the then-presidential candidate, admitted to lusting in his heart; and the 1980 interview with the Los Angeles Times, during which Bush I confessed to Scheer his dream of a "winnable nuclear war." In Playing President, Robert Scheer offers an unparalleled insight into the presidential mind. Through both new writing and reprinted material, he analyzes each administration since Nixon, and including George W. Bush, offering insights that will surprise the reader -- particularly those with rigid preconceptions about the decision-making processes of our leaders. The volume will also include Scheer's famous presidential interviews, along with previously unpublished interview transcripts and select previous writings.
