Plot Synopsis

TURMOIL & TRIUMPH: THE GEORGE SHULTZ YEARS offers an inside look at American government at the highest levels during the time that George Shultz served as Secretary of State under President Ronald Reagan from 1982 - 1989. Award-winning authors and distinguished historians Richard Reeves and Walter LaFeber provide perspective on the personalities of not only Reagan, but First Lady Nancy Reagan and others in the Administration, capturing the intrigue and infighting as advisors compete for the ear of the President over historic issues like Iran/Contra and the Star Wars Space Defense Initiative. Featuring extensive interviews with George Shultz as well as former Secretaries Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice; Senators Edward Kennedy, Sam Nunn and Richard Lugar; Mikhail Gorbachev and others, this three-part series presents a never-before-seen look at the inner workings of the Reagan White House.
