About the Author
Warren Christopher served as Secretary of State from 1993 to 1997. At present, he is Senior Partner at O'Melveny & Myers, an international law firm headquartered in Los Angeles.
"Christopher presents a through, insightful, often eloquent examination of . . . foreign policy goals and policies. This book is testimony to the power of words and speeches in the making and selling of a nation's foreign policy and is essential reading for anyone trying to make sense out of a confused and confusing world."--Library Journal
"Gentlemanly, discreet, and utterly focused on substance rather than style--in short, an important book. . . . A first-rate historical document. . . . Anybody who wants to understand American foreign policy from 1993 to 1997 needs to consult In the Stream of History; the speechmaking process was critical to Christopher's management of policy debates in the State Department, and the introductory essays prefacing the text of each speech often provide information crucial for understanding the evolution of American foreign policy in the first Clinton term."--Washington Post Book World
"A first-rate historical document....Anybody who wants to understand American foreign policy from 1993 to 1997 needs to consult In the Stream of History."--Washington Post Book World
"For all Secretary Christopher's skill at diffusing crises, I believe his lasting legacy was built behind the headlines, laying the foundations for our future. Under his leadership we've taken on new threats like terrorism, the spread of weapons of mass destruction, and environmental degradation."--Remarks by President Clinton "upon Warren Christopher's resignation "
"The Secretary of State who was present at the creation of the post-Cold War world allows us to begin to understand how it was done. With his legendary thoughtfulness, modesty, deep reading, acute use of language and diplomatic mastery, Warren Christopher has brought us a major contribution--a crucial source on our country's history in the 1990s."--Michael Beschloss
