The Georgetown Set: Friends and Rivals in Cold War Washington
The Georgetown Set: Friends and Rivals in Cold War Washington. Herken takes readers to the neighborhood of Georgetown in Washington, D.C., and presents a cast of characters who lived in that neighborhood and formed or influenced major public policies. While there are lots of characters presented, it seemed to me that two individuals dominated the narrative: journalists Joseph and Stewart Alsop. Political junkies and those interested in Washington, D.C. are the readers most likely to enjoy this book. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Georgetown Set from amazon.com.
