Former Reagan defense secretary Caspar Weinberger joins forces with Gretchen Roberts to present In the Arena: A Memoir of the 20th Century, a straightforward and detailed account that follows Weinberger from childhood to college, from Harvard Law School to WWII, and from the California State Assembly to the cabinets of three presidents.
