Webinar: 'The Man Who Ran Washington' — A Conversation with James A. Baker III, Peter Baker and Susan Glasser

In “The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III,” authors Peter Baker and Susan Glasser, two of America’s most prominent political journalists, write the definitive biography of Secretary Baker as a power broker who influenced America's destiny for generations. The book is a case study in the acquisition, exercise and preservation of power in late 20th century America and the story of Washington and the world in the modern era — how it once worked and how it has transformed into an era of gridlock and polarization.

At this event, Secretary Baker will join Baker and Glasser for an online discussion of the book moderated by Mark Updegrove, president and CEO of the LBJ Foundation.

The event is co-sponsored by the LBJ Presidential Foundation and Baker Botts, LLP. Follow @BakerInstitute on Twitter, and join the conversation online with #BakerBook.
