Peter Baker, Senior White House Correspondent, The New York Times; Contributing Writer, The New York Times Magazine; Author, Days of Fire: Bush and Cheney in the White House
Joel Brinkley, Hearst Visiting Professional in Residence, Stanford University; Former Editor and Reporter, The New York Times - Moderator
Baker’s new book Days of Fire narrates two profoundly significant and conflicted presidential terms of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney marked by 9/11, Iraq, Katrina, jihad, nuclear proliferation, genocide, and economic collapse. Baker researched the book for five years and conducted interviews with more than 200 players – White House aides, cabinet secretaries, generals, senators and congressmen, relatives and friends of both men – to help reveal the truth of Bush and Cheney’s complicated and shifting relationship.
