He was best known as the author of the book War and Peace in the Nuclear Age, published as companion to a PBS series. Newhouse was the author of nine books and a civil servant whose work spanned over fifty years. He worked for Collier's magazine; authored numerous books on diplomacy, history, and later the airline industry. After Collier’s ceased publication, Newhouse worked in broadcast journalism with ABC News and was sent in 1958 to Beirut to cover the military operation of the U.S. Marines. He is considered the preeminent historian on SALT I (the strategic arms limitation talks that took place between 1969 and 1972 and resulted in the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty) for his book Cold Dawn. Newhouse joined the staff of the New Yorker where he wrote about diplomacy, arms control, and current affairs as well as profiles of prominent figures including Hussein, King of Jordan, and former U.S. Senator Alan K. Simpson. He also had a second career as a government official with the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency and the United States State Department. At this department, he was a negotiator of the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) II.

Introduction by Michael Dirda. Appendix: Timeline. Richard Peabody is a poet, editor, and publisher, based in Washington, D.C. A native of the Washington DC metropolitan region, Peabody received a B.A. in English from the University of Maryland in 1973 and a M.A. in Literature from American University in 1975. Peabody is perhaps best known as one of the founding editors for Gargoyle Magazine, which he largely funded with his own income. He is also editor for the anthology series Mondo and runs a small press called Paycock Press. Paycock Press was originally established in 1976 to publish Gargoyle Magazine, but it also has released a number of anthologies and works by individual authors. Peabody's own fiction and poetry is often set in Washington, D.C. and the surrounding region. It is often noted for strong influences from the Beat Generation and experimental authors of the 1960s such as Ken Kesey. During his writing and publishing career, Peabody has taught fiction writing for the University of Maryland, University of Virginia, Johns Hopkins University, and the Writer's Center. In addition, Peabody has taught creative writing courses and workshops at St. John's College, Writer's Center, Georgetown University, and University of Maryland.
Charlottesville, Virginia: Just World Books, 2012. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. 221,  pages. Footnotes. Illustrations. Some cover wear and soiling. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page. Inscription reads: Dear Tamar, Peace! Miko Peled, 6/24/12. Author's e-mail address written in ink on first page. Includes Foreword by Alice Walker, Introduction, and Acknowledgments. Chapters include The Early Years; A Long Way from Home; The Road to Palestine; and Hope for Peace. Miko Peled (born 1961) is an Israeli-American activist and author. He is author of the books The General’s Son: The Journey of an Israeli in Palestine and Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five. He is also an international speaker. Peled has described his book, The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine (2012), as an account of how he, "the son of an Israeli General and a staunch Zionist, came to realize that "the story upon which I was raised ... was a lie." The book, he has said, is based largely on long conversations with his mother, on a thorough reading of "everything my dad had ever written," and on material about his father's career in the Israeli army archives. The book, which has been characterized as "part confessional, part cinematic epic and part emotional appeal for 'different answers' to the Israeli-Palestinian conundrum," contains a foreword by Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple. In this candid account, Miko Peled tells how he followed in the footsteps of the genera (his father)l, from parachutist to fighter for peace. This fascinating story provides much food for thought. Alice Walker (born 1944) is a novelist, short story writer, poet, and social activist.
