Between February 2011 and February 2012, Senator Arlen Specter sat down before the cameras of the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) to record his oral history. The result was a fifteen-hour television series, which ran on cable systems across Pennsylvania over five nights in May 2012. This book is drawn from the transcripts of those interviews, in which Specter recalled his time as Philadelphia district attorney, his service on the Warren Commission, his questioning of Robert Bork and Anita Hill, and his visits with world leaders. The result is a unique insight into the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Pennsylvania history.
