Anatoly Dobrynin arrived in Washington, D.C., in 1962 — at 43 the youngest man ever to serve as Soviet Ambassador to the United States — and remained through the presidencies of Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan. Dobrynin became the main channel for the White House and the Kremlin to exchange ideas, negotiate in secret, and arrange summit meetings. Dobrynin writes vividly of Moscow from inside the Politburo, but In Confidence is mainly a story of Washington at the highest levels.
