Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In A Moment of Crisis, Marion V. Creekmore, Jr. tells the story of Jimmy Carter's dramatic intervention in the 1994 North Korean nuclear crisis and shows how Carter prevented what he had determined was an almost certain war. Writing with the cooperation of President Carter, and drawing on a large amount of primary source material that has never been used before, Creekmore, who accompanied Carter into North Korea, delivers a gripping narrative of the former President on one of his most remarkable missions, a clear-eyed investigation into the controversies and successes of the mission and others like it, and an illuminating look at how to best handle North Korea and other "rogue regimes." This is essential reading for anyone interested in diplomacy of the highest order, how Jimmy Carter has accomplished the extraordinary achievements of his post-Presidency, the circumstances that can lead to war, and the resolve that it takes to avoid it.

Synopsis:

A closely observed and illuminating look at Jimmy Carter, North Korea, the Clinton White House, and how disaster was averted in 1994's nuclear crisis
