Publisher's Summary

One of the most admired newsmen in America, Bob Shieffer has won six Emmy Awards and been recognized by the National Press Foundation as the Broadcaster of the Year. The chief Washington correspondent for CBS News, Schieffer is also The New York Times best-selling author of This Just In. Now in this fascinating audiobook, Schieffer shares his favorite memories from the award-winning news broadcast Face the Nation, in celebration of the program's 50-year anniversary.

Through Schieffer's unique insight, the most momentous events of the past half-century are vividly rediscovered. Shieffer brings back to life the 1954 interview with Senator Joe McCarthy and the 1957 interview with Nikita Khrushchev. From the civil rights movement to the September 11 terrorist attacks, all the way through the second war in Iraq, Face the Nation is a lens through which 50 years of American history can be viewed more clearly than ever before.
