"Fight House looks juicy as all hell" - National Review "Troy seamlessly weaves West Wing gossip with significant moments in modern history." - Jewish Insider THE WHITE HOUSE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A FIGHT HOUSE President Trump's White House is famously tumultuous. But as presidential historian and former White House staffer Tevi Troy reminds us, bitter rivalries inside the White House are nothing new. From the presidencies of Harry S. Truman, when the modern White House staff took shape, to Donald Trump, the White House has been filled with ambitious people playing for the highest stakes and bearing bitter grudges. In Fight House , you'll discover: -The advisor to President Harry Truman that General George Marshall refused to acknowledge -How the supposed "Camelot" Kennedy White House was rife with conflict -How Dr. Henry Kissinger displaced other national security advisors to gain President Richard Nixon's ear -Why President Jimmy Carter's personal pettiness and obsession with detail led to a dysfunctional White House--and played a role in his losing the 1980 election -How the contrasting management styles of President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan led to some epic White House staff clashes -Why the "No Drama Obama" White House was anything but no drama Insightful, entertaining, and important, Tevi Troy's Fight House will delight and instruct anyone interested in American politics and presidential history.
