Nixonland: The Rise of a President and the Fracturing of America

4.4 26
by Rick Perlstein
 

Told with urgency and sharp political insight, Nixonland recaptures America's turbulent 1960s and early 1970s and reveals how Richard Nixon rose from the political grave to seize and hold the presidency.

Perlstein's epic account begins in the blood and fire of the 1965 Watts riots, nine months after Lyndon

Johnson's historic landslide victory over Barry

As informative as a book can get. Thoroughly researched and documented. A must read for those who experienced the 60's. Reading the book makes one realize how far we have come as a culture.This book is not an easy read, but well worth the effort.

Nixon was elected ended the war in Vietnam, opened China and calm the turbulant waters of the 60s. That's why he was reelected. He obeyed the Supreme Court and did not destroy his tapes(as Johnson certainly would) thereby showing he was a law abiding man . This lead to his downfall. He was a great president, however liberals will never forgive hum because he was right about Alger Hiss.

To the previous reviewer who said Nixon was right...that is laughable. He was dead wrong in the way he threw the Constitution out the window and tried to create a one party state (sound familiar?). And all the paranoid power mongering cheats who filtered down to the GW Bush's administration prove it. Paranoid leaders who suspend democracy in our own country while proclaiming the need for it in others are on the out! ENOUGH RIGHT WING justification. The truth isn't kind to any ideology which is as it should be. At least Johnson gave us the Civil Rights Laws which sadly gave the South back to the Republicans.
