Overview

Having interviewed a large number of political insiders from the Nixon administration (and a selection of other involved political figures), the authors thematically arrange the reminiscences of figures such as John Dean, H.R. Haldeman, Daniel Ellsberg, and Robert Bork. The issues that not unexpectedly dominate the proceedings are the Vietnam War and Watergate. The spectacular implosion of the Nixon administration means that a more controversial picture emerges in the text than one might expect from such an insider-heavy roster. Those not already familiar with the figures involved may have difficulty keeping track of all of them, as their relationship to the presidency is only cited upon first appearance. This is a revised Nixon: An Oral History of the Presidency (1994). Distributed by Books International. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
