James Goodale, chief counsel for the New York Times when the Pentagon Papers were published, tells the stories of the internal debates and the reasoning behind the strategy that emerged in the intense debate over whether or not publishing these documents would be in the country's interest. Fighting for the Press: The Inside Story of the Pentagon Papers and Other Battles follows those weeks in June when the press's freedom of speech came under its most sustained assault since the Second World War.
