Stuart Eizenstat was at Jimmy Carter’s side from his political rise in Georgia through four years in the White House, where he served as Chief Domestic Policy Adviser. He was directly involved in all domestic and economic decisions as well as in many foreign policy ones. Famous for the legal pads he took to every meeting, he drew from more that 5,000 pages of notes and 350 interviews to write his latest book “President Carter: The White House Years.”
After serving in the Carter Administration, Eizenstat was appointed as U.S. Ambassador to the European Union 1993-1996 and U. S. Deputy Secretary of the Treasure 1999-2001.
Ambassador Eizenstat’s book has been hailed as the definitive history of the Carter Administration from the man who participated in its surprising number of accomplishments – drawing on his extensive and never-before-seen notes. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and a signing will follow the discussion.
