Summary
Since his resignation from the U.S. House of Representatives, Jim Wright has been silent on the incredible events that shook Washington in the 1980s and ended his brilliant career. Now, at last, he bares his soul and completes the history of this turbulent time. His very personal, anecdote-filled story takes us inside the highest levels of government and challenges our assumptions by telling us how President Reagan invited Wright into the Central American peace process. and then denounced him when it began to work; Wright dealt with all the key players in the United States and Central America, and came to call many of them his friends; he helped stop the killing in Central America despite administration opposition; State Department officials and the Washington Times plotted to blame him for a classified leak; the lies of administration officials led Congress to reject executive branch policies; and a cabal of hardcore conservatives. coordinated a vicious assault on Wright's reputation by accusing him of unethical - although never illegal - actions. Wright's fascinating story is backed with documents from his personal files, including a note from Secretary of State James Baker crediting him with making democracy possible in Nicaragua
