About the book:

NonfictionLarge Print EditionA gripping, meticulously researched biography that places the reader inside the corridors of power in Rome, Moscow and Washington, D.C. San Francisco Chronicle* A New York Times BestsellerPulitzer Prize-winner Carl Bernstein and Marco Politi, the dean of Vatican journalists, combine their substantial abilities to show how Kremlin elders struggled in vain to overcome the alarming power and influence that Pope John Paul II had on Eastern Europe. The Pope had become the inspiration and protection of Solidarity, and after a meeting in Rome with then-president Ronald Reagan, the pair committed the vast resources of two superpowers one spiritual, the other strategic to hastening the demise of communism. Compelling journalism, drama, history, and biography, His Holiness, reveals the real story behind the end of the cold war and a definitive portrait of a great moral leader of our time.
