Here, closely observed from an insider's viewpoint, are the significant matters of 1999 - from the Clinton impeachment and the war in Kosovo to the mass-marketing of Viagra. Here are the people (both on and off camera) who made the news, from Slobodan Milosevic to Hillary Rodham Clinton to John F. Kennedy, Jr.

Koppel's audio moves on yet another level as events trigger memories of his own past, providing a more personal resonance to his telling of the history we all share. He takes us back to the England in which he lived until he was 13. He revisits his powerful experiences as an interviewer investigating prison abuses and probing the violence in our schools. He discusses the strengths and weaknesses of the media, and talks about racial intolerance, brutality toward homosexuals, and the absence of political leadership.

Here is the voice we know from Nightline - intelligent, curious, opinionated, witty, concerned - reminding us in entertaining and thought-provoking ways that even the most public events reverberate in our private lives.
