Stanley K. Sheinbaum
GET UPDATES FROM Stanley K. Sheinbaum
The memoir of an exceptional man who began life as an unexceptional young boy growing up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan when the Crash of 1929 brought disaster to the family, but whose later life reads like a chronicle of major events of the late 20th century: exposing secret CIA involvement in Vietnam, running for Congress, organizing Daniel Ellsberg's defense for the Pentagon Papers trial, engineering freedom for Andreas Papandreou jailed by a Greek military junta about to execute him. Sheinbaum married Betty Warner, daughter of Harry Warner of Warner Bros., then he and Betty became the nexus of a powerful group of liberal Hollywood notables essential to the campaigns of Eugene McCarthy, George McGovern, Bill Clinton and so many others. Stanley was personally committed to seeking peace in the Middle East and was vilified for his early contacts with Yassar Arafat which led to the Oslo Accords. He later became president of the Los Angeles Police Commission and was instrumental in removing the infamous L.A.police chief, Daryl Gates.
