'And Then I Met...' Stories of Growing Up, Meeting Famous People, and Annoying the Hell Out of Them (Autographed) (Hardcover)
"And Then I Met ..." is a collection of humorous, adventurous and sometimes poignant boyhood stories told by former Congressman James Rogan of doing everything possible, short of breaking the law, to meet and get advice from many famous politicians, athletes and entertainment figures he met as a kid growing up in San Francisco. Through Rogan's diaries and photos, you'll meet and get rare behind-the-scenes glimpses of people like Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Billy Graham, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, Hubert Humphrey, Barry Goldwater, Cary Grant, Willie Mays and dozens more. Rogan met everyone – from the last surviving witness of the massacre of General Custer to stars of "Gone With the Wind" and "The Wizard of Oz." The stories and photographs brim over in this delightful compilation.

Rough Edges: My Unlikely Road from Welfare to Washington (Autographed) (Hardcover)
As one of the leading members of the House Judiciary Committee that impeached President Bill Clinton, James Rogan's place in the pantheon of conservative heroes remains secure. But that is just part of an amazing life story that contains more drama than found in 10 lives. Born to a single mother – a cocktail waitress and convicted felon on welfare – Rogan grew up without knowing his father who abandoned him before his birth.
After a rough-and-tumble childhood in San Francisco's hardscrabble Mission District, he was expelled from high school; became a bartender on Hollywood's Sunset Strip and in a Hell's Angels' biker bar; and worked as a porn theater bouncer.
Along the way he met a young Arkansas lawyer and politician who advised him to study law and become a member of a different kind of bar.
In time, Rogan scrapped his way through college and law school; became a gang-murder DA in Los Angeles prosecuting Crips and Bloods; and then became a state court judge and majority leader of his state legislature. Finally, he won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from Southern California.
In 1998, as a Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, he found himself helping to lead the impeachment of the president of the United States Bill Clinton – the same Arkansas lawyer who advised him to go into law and politics two decades earlier.
"Rough Edges" is chock-full of wild tales, humor and fun. Rogan tells an engaging story that will make you laugh and cry, and his is perhaps the most honest political memoir ever written. Includes a 16-page black-and-white photo insert.

Catching Our Flag: Behind the Scenes of a Presidential Impeachment - (Autographed)(Hardcover)
It has been more than a dozen years since the media force-fed America and the world a steady diet of Monica Lewinsky's blue dress, a wagging presidential finger and the parsing of phrases like "the meaning of 'is.'"
Now, Jim Rogan has opened this archive for both modern readers and for history by penning the ultimate insider's story on what led a very reluctant House of Representatives to impeach a then-very-popular American president.
From his first day on the House Judiciary Committee, Rogan knew if the scandal ever led to impeachment proceedings, future accounts would suffer from faulty memories or faulty motives. To combat the threat of factual or historical error, Rogan kept copious notes during every significant meeting relating to impeachment from his first day on the committee. He did this so there would be a complete and accurate historical chronicle – the best evidence – of what really happened behind the scenes in the unfolding drama.
This historically important archive is unmatched in its thoroughness and integrity.
