The memoir of an exceptional man who began life as an unexceptional young boy growing up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan when the Crash of 1929 brought disaster, but whose later life reads like a chronicle of major events of the late 20th century. Secret CIA involvement in Vietnam, running for Congress, organizing Daniel Ellsberg's defense for the Pentagon Papers trial, engineering freedom for Andreas Papandreou jailed by a Greek military junta about to execute him. He married Betty Warner, daughter of Harry Warner of Warner Bros., then he and Betty became the nexus of a powerful group of liberal Hollywood notablesessential to the campaigns of Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern, Bill Clinton and so many others. Stanley personally committed to seeking peace in the Middle East and was vilified for his contacts with Yassar Arafat which led to the Oslo Accords. He later became president of the Los Angeles Police Commission and was instrumental in removing the infamous L.A.police chief, Daryl Gates. Includes numerous photos of significant events and the people who made them so. "Stanley has devoted his life to the preservation of our most cherished personal freedoms. He has worked for civil liberties for Americans and advanced the cause of human rights abroad" - President Bill Clinton "Stanley Sheinbaum, a man beloved by all straight-thinking people who know him." - Jane Fonda "Stanley has witnessed history up close and personal, leaving an indelible mark on some of the most defining political moments of our time. He is fortunate to have lived a life filled with intellectual curiosity, generosity, and wit." - Barbra Streisand "He's addicted to fairness and justice. All of us start off as the proverbial grain of sand on the beach of life. In that context, Stanley Sheinbaum has moved mountains." - Norman Lear "Stanley is a fearless activist, a genuinely honest and humble student of what is going on and smart as hell." - Warren Beatty
