2 ANDERSON, JACK with, CLIFFORD, GEORGE The Anderson papers.
New York Random House 1973 Book Club (BCE/BOMC) Hard Cover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
271 pages, cloth, dj, very good. Book Club Edition. From the publisher: Jack Anderson won the Pulitzer Prize for his investigative reporting. Now, in The Anderson Papers, he reveals not only how he broke the recent stories which have been headlined across the nation, but more important, he tells those stories in unprecedented detail. There is a candid confession about the whole Eagleton affair - what the evidence was regarding the traffic tickets and drunken driving charges, the confrontation on national TV and Anderson's subsequent apology and withdrawal of the charges. From his intensive investigation he documents the whole II involvement with the Republic Party - and even how the methods created to hide what had been done were later used in the Watergate 'cover-up.' In a major section he writes an engrossing and explosive narrative uncovering the 'deception of the American people' by the Nixon administration over the India-Pakistan war.

16 FRIEDRICH, OTTO Decline and fall.
Harper & Row 1970 First Edition Hard Cover 
499 pages, 20 plates, cloth, dj, very good. From the dj: The greatest corporate disaster in American history - that was one verdict on the decline and fall of the Curtis Publishing Company. Just a decade ago it was a national institution, rich and proud, and its leading magazine, the Saturday Evening Post, was an integral part of America's image of itself. Today the Post is dead and the Curtis empire lies in ruins. How can such disasters happen? This book chronicles the whole incredible calamity. It is the first book in which major crises in the Executive Suite are revealed by a key insider who is also a gifted writer. The author was the Post's brilliant young managing editor, and for five years he kept a secret journal.

20 GJELTEN, TOM Sarajevo Daily : A City and Its Newspaper under Siege
New York Harpercollins, 1995 0060190523 / 9780060190521 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Xvi,270,[1] pages, illustrations, maps, cloth, dj, very good. 1st edition. From the publisher: "The war in Bosnia began as a conflict between Serb nationalists intent on carving out their own ethnically pure state and Bosnian citizens who wanted their country to remain undivided. Nowhere was it fought more intensely than in Sarajevo, a city famous for its interfaith tolerance and cultural diversity. Besieged and bombarded, the people of Sarajevo struggled heroically to maintain their prewar lives and traditions. Tom Gjelten captures the whole Sarajevo saga in the story of Oslobodjenje, the city's celebrated daily newspaper. The ten-story Oslobodjenje headquarters was one of the first buildings targeted by Serb nationalist gunners, and within months it was blasted and burned nearly to the ground. But the Oslobodjenje staff - Muslims, Serbs, and Croats working together - retreated to an underground shelter and miraculously managed to continue publishing throughout the siege of Sarajevo, every single day. Their unbroken record testifies to the resilience of Sarajevo's population at large, while their private crises, quarrels, and passions mirror the life of a multiethnic community under nationalist assault. By tracking Oslobodjenje's story from the prewar period through Sarajevo's darkest days to the final stages of despair and disillusion, Tom Gjelten illuminates the issues at the heart of the Bosnian conflict. By setting his war chronicle at a newspaper, he explores the role of a free press in wartime and provides an intimate account of Sarajevo and its struggles as experienced by real people in their daily lives."
