Overview

The Nixon Presidency covers the entire period of one of the most controversial administrations, not just Watergate and Nixon's resignation. The book analyzes both his domestic programs during his first term and partial second term and his conduct of foreign affairs, including his surprising opening to the communist Chinese. It also explores his highly controversial handling of the Vietnam War. The authors' recent update takes advantage of temporal distance from the days of Watergate to put the legacy of Nixon's presidency into its proper historical context.

Meet the Author

Deborah Hart Strober and Gerald Strober are the co-authors of nine books to date, including oral histories of the Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan presidencies; and oral biographies of Queen Elizabeth II, His Holiness the Dalai Lama; the evangelist Billy Graham: and Rudolph Giuliani. In compiling these works, the Strobers managed to penetrate the inner worlds of more than 500 leading personalities, including U.S. political figures and officials, foreign leaders, members of the British royal family, and religious personalities. In 2009, their book on Bernard L. Madoff, the first one to be published on that major financial scandal, was designated the Washington Post's Business Book of the Month for May 2009. Two years later, the Strobers collaborated with Herman Cain, at that time a candidate for the Republican Party's 2012 presidential nomination, on his New York Times best-selling autobiography This Is Herman Cain! The Strobers reside in New York City.
