November 5, 2018
An Evening with Stuart Eizenstat
President Carter: The White House Years
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.
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 draws on more than 5,000 pages of notes and 350 interviews of all the major figures of the time, to write the comprehensive history of an underappreciated president―and to give an intimate view on how the presidency works.

Jimmy Carter: The White House Years in August’s Moment Magazine by Wesley G. Pippert, the UPI reporter who covered the Carter White House: “I have no doubt Eizenstat’s will endure as the definitive book on Carter’s presidency….I was covering Carter for UPI during this period and I certainly did not know–nor did the other reporters–about the fusses and feuding taking place inside the White House.”
“Every so often, Americans seem to rethink the legacy of some important figure–Alexander Hamilton, for example, or Harry Truman. In ‘President Carter: The White House Years’, a penetrating account of his time working for the nation’s 39th president, Stuart Eizenstat argues that it’s time to reassess Jimmy Carter.” –Minneapolis Star-Tribune
