about

Twists and Turns is a personal, revealing memoir that bares previously untold episodes of international historical interest from an insiders perspective. Learn what Alexei Kosygin predicted in a Moscow meeting with the author in 1959; how Mexico offered to sell the author its natural gas on credit after President Carter refused to have the US buy it; and how the author helped America retain its military bases in Spain. After decades as a preeminent lawyer, negotiator and well-known figure on the New York scene which included many fascinating encounters with major companies and controversial figures like Roy Cohn and Ivan Boesky, the author tells how he switched careers to become a highly successful diplomat in chemical weapons arms control. He writes of family, close friends and law clients including dozens of world-renowned figures from Senator Jacob Javits to Sammy Davis, Jr., from John DeLorean to the King of Spain. His experiences run the gamut from playing a role in affecting the outcome of the 2000 presidential election in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida to confronting General Omar Torrijos, the dictator of Panama, in his jungle hideout.
