Fear: Trump in the White House

Серия: "-"

With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump's White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence. Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president's first years in office.

Woodward, Bob

▪ 2005

      The reporter became the story when Plan of Attack, the latest book from legendary Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, was leaked to the Associated Press three days ahead of its scheduled release date in April 2004. The book, which included interviews with Washington political insiders and provided a behind-the-scenes look at the administration of U.S. Pres. George W. Bush (q.v. (Bush, George W. )) in the 16 months leading up to the war in Iraq, immediately shot to number one on the Amazon.com sales list. Within weeks it reached the top of the New York Times best-seller list, becoming Woodward's 10th book to achieve that feat.

      Robert Upshur Woodward was born on March 26, 1943, in Geneva, Ill. He grew up in Wheaton, a suburb of Chicago, where his father was a prominent jurist. It was thought that he would follow his father into the legal profession when he enrolled at Yale University on a naval ROTC scholarship. After receiving his B.A. in history and English literature in 1965, Woodward began a five-year tour of duty as a communications officer. Upon his return, he was accepted (1970) at Harvard Law School. He chose not to pursue a law degree; instead, he petitioned the editors of the Washington Post for an unpaid two-week internship. While none of the stories he submitted was printed, the editors saw potential in the aspiring reporter and referred him to the Montgomery County Sentinel, a weekly paper in suburban Maryland. Within a year Woodward had polished his skills enough that the Post was willing to give him another chance. He had been covering the police beat for nine months when a call came in about a burglary at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex. Working with fellow Post reporter Carl Bernstein, Woodward eventually connected the break-in to the highest levels of the administration of U.S. Pres. Richard Nixon. For Woodward and Bernstein's reporting, the Post was awarded the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for public service. The names Woodward and Bernstein became virtually synonymous with investigative journalism, and their book, All the President's Men (1974), topped the best-seller list. The 1976 film version of the book, with Woodward portrayed by Robert Redford, was also a great success.

      Woodward continued his work at the Post and was named assistant managing editor in 1979. In the following years, however, he became better known for his books than for his newspaper reporting. Exposés on personalities as varied as comedian John Belushi and former U.S. vice president Dan Quayle drew both admiration and criticism, with reviewers praising his ability to unearth volumes of information while disparaging his tendency to dwell on sordidness. His recent material, however, focused on hard news and the power and politics of Washington. He led a team that earned another Pulitzer for the Post in 2002 for the paper's coverage of the repercussions of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the U.S.

▪ American journalist and author
in full  Robert Upshur Woodward 
born March 26, 1943, Geneva, Ill., U.S.
 
 American journalist and author who, with Carl Bernstein, earned a Pulitzer Prize for The Washington Post (Washington Post, The) in 1973 for his investigative reporting on the Watergate Scandal.

      Woodward grew up in Wheaton, a suburb of Chicago, where his father was a prominent jurist. It was thought that he would follow his father into the legal profession when he enrolled at Yale University on a naval Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) scholarship. After receiving a bachelor's degree in history and English literature in 1965, Woodward began a five-year tour of duty as a communications officer. Upon his return, he was accepted (1970) at Harvard Law School. He chose not to pursue a law degree, however. Instead, he petitioned the editors of The Washington Post for an unpaid two-week internship. While none of the stories he submitted was printed, the editors saw potential in the aspiring reporter and referred him to the Montgomery County Sentinel, a weekly paper in suburban Maryland. Within a year Woodward had polished his skills enough that the Post was willing to give him another chance.

      Woodward had been covering the police beat for nine months when a call came in about a burglary at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex. Working with Bernstein, a fellow Post reporter, Woodward eventually connected the break-in to the highest levels of the administration of U.S. Pres. Richard Nixon (Nixon, Richard M.). For Woodward and Bernstein's reporting, the Post was awarded the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for public service. The names Woodward and Bernstein became virtually synonymous with investigative journalism, and their book, All the President's Men (1974), topped the best-seller list. The 1976 film version of the book, with Woodward portrayed by Robert Redford (Redford, Robert), was also a success.

      Woodward continued his work at the Post and was named assistant managing editor in 1979. In the following years, however, he became better known for his books than for his newspaper reporting. Exposés on personalities as varied as comedian John Belushi and former U.S. vice president Dan Quayle (Quayle, Dan) drew both admiration and criticism, with reviewers praising his ability to unearth volumes of information while disparaging his tendency to dwell on sordidness. His later material, however, focused on hard news and the power and politics of Washington. He led a team that earned another Pulitzer for the Post in 2002 for the paper's coverage of the repercussions of the September 11 attacks in the United States in 2001. That year he released the first in a series of books that offered an insider's look at the administration of Pres. George W. Bush (Bush, George W.). Bush at War (2002) profiled the personalities who shaped the American military response in Afghanistan, while Plan of Attack (2004) covered the period leading up to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. (See Iraq War.) State of Denial (2006), a departure from the generally complimentary tone found in the previous two works, provided a scathing dissection of the missteps and unheeded advice that continued to undermine the administration's war efforts. His fourth volume on the Bush administration, The War Within (2008), offered a harsh assessment of the president.
