A captivating blend of personal biography and public drama i The Wise Men i introduces the original best and brightest leaders whose outsized personalities and actions brought order to postwar chaos Averell Harriman the freewheeling diplomat and Roosevelt s special envoy to Churchill and Stalin Dean Acheson the secretary of state who was more responsible for the Truman Doctrine than Truman and for the Marshall Plan than General Marshall George Kennan self cast outsider and intellectual darling of the Washington elite Robert Lovett assistant secretary of war undersecretary of state and secretary of defense throughout the formative years of the Cold War John McCloy one of the nation s most influential private citizens and Charles Bohlen adroit diplomat and ambassador to the Soviet Union, Benjamin Franklin is the Founding Father who winks at us An ambitious urban entrepreneur who rose up the social ladder from leather aproned shopkeeper to dining with kings he seems made of flesh rather than of marble In bestselling author Walter Isaacson s vivid and witty full scale biography we discover why Franklin seems to turn to us from history s stage with eyes that twinkle from behind his new fangled spectacles By bringing Franklin to life Isaacson shows how he helped to define both his own time and ours p He was during his year life America s best scientist inventor diplomat writer and business strategist and he was also one of its most practical though not most profound political thinkers He proved by flying a kite that lightning was electricity and he invented a rod to tame it He sought practical ways to make stoves less smoky and commonwealths less corrupt He organized neighborhood constabularies and international alliances local lending libraries and national legislatures He combined two types of lenses to create bifocals and two concepts of representation to foster the nation s federal compromise He was the only man who shaped all the founding documents of America the Albany Plan of Union the Declaration of Independence the treaty of alliance with France the peace treaty with England and the Constitution And he helped invent America s unique style of homespun humor democratic values and philosophical pragmatism p p But the most interesting thing that Franklin invented and continually reinvented was himself America s first great publicist he was in his life and in his writings consciously trying to create a new American archetype In the process he carefully crafted his own persona portrayed it in public and polished it for posterity p p Through it all he trusted the hearts and minds of his fellow leather aprons more than he did those of any inbred elite He saw middle class values as a source of social strength not as something to be derided His guiding principle was a dislike of everything that tended to debase the spirit of the common people Few of his fellow founders felt this comfort with democracy so fully and none so intuitively p p In this colorful and intimate narrative Isaacson provides the full sweep of Franklin s amazing life from his days as a runaway printer to his triumphs as a statesman scientist and Founding Father He chronicles Franklin s tumultuous relationship with his illegitimate son and grandson his practical marriage and his flirtations with the ladies of Paris He also shows how Franklin helped to create the American character and why he has a particular resonance in the twenty first century p, The computer and the internet are among the most important innovations of our era but few people know who created them They were not conjured up in a garret or garage by solo inventors suitable to be singled out on magazine covers or put into a pantheon with Edison Bell and Morse Instead most of the innovations of the digital age were done collaboratively There were a lot of fascinating people involved some ingenious and a few even geniuses This is the story of these pioneers hackers inventors and entrepreneurs who they were how their minds worked and what made them so creative It s also a narrative of how they collaborated and why their ability to work as teams made them even more creative, By the time Henry Kissinger was made secretary of state in he had become according to the Gallup Poll the most admired person in America and one of the most unlikely celebrities ever to capture the world s imagination Yet Kissinger was also reviled by large segments of the American public ranging from liberal intellectuals to conservative activists Kissinger explores the relationship between this complex man s personality and the foreign policy he pursued Drawing on extensive interviews with Kissinger as well as other sources including U S presidents and his business clients this first full length biography makes use of many of Kissinger s private papers and classified memos to tell his uniquely American story The result is an intimate narrative filled with surprising revelations that takes this grandly colorful statesman from his childhood as a persecuted Jew in Nazi Germany through his tortured relationship with Richard Nixon to his later years as a globe trotting business consultant
