Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Ambrose continues to pull no punches in his third volume on the former president; highly recommended for those seeking to fathom the Nixon enigma. Photos. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Although Ambrose discusses Nixon's post-presidential roles as author and elder statesman, this final volume of his three-part biography ( Nixon: The Education of a Politican, 1913-1962 , LJ 5/1/87; one of LJ 's ``Best Books of 1987''; and Nixon: The Triumph of a Politician , LJ 11/1/89) is largely the story of Watergate. Unlike Tom Wicker's One of Us: Richard Nixon and the American Dream ( LJ 2/1/91), which credits Nixon as a domestic success, Ambrose concludes that because of Watergate, Nixon's well-intended national and international programs were not ``accomplishments but might have beens.'' The ultimate and, to Ambrose, tragic legacy of the president who wanted to be admired but not liked was the destruction of the moderate wing of the Republican party. Complemented by Roger Morris's Richard Milhous Nixon: The Rise of an American Politician and Herbert Parmet's Richard Nixon and His America (both reviewed LJ 12/89), Ambrose's three-volume biography is an indispensable acquisition for academic collections and is highly recommended for most public libraries as well. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/91.-- Karl He licher, Upper Merion Twp . Lib., King of Prussia, Pa.

    Well done!

    An excellently researched and fairly written account of someone who wanted to do what was right. I look forward to Volumes II and III.

    Defective copy

    Not to take anything away from the author or the content, unfortunately I received a copy from a reseller (no fault of his of course) with pages 401-432 MISSING. Not torn out mind you but absolutely missing. I don't know about anyone else but a book with missing pages is not worth reading. It can best be evaluated by going through the index and finding topics covered under the missing pages and then you can see what you won't be reading. Simply put I don't like books with missing pages. I may just try ordering another copy but unfortunately I only see a 1988 reprint which is my defective copy. Apart from that I recommend any reading by the late Stephen Ambrose. He himself thought Nixon such a great subject that his biography of Nixon had to be written in a trilogy. The subject itself is of 5-star quality

    An interesting(yet balanced) view of Nixon

    One of the first full-lenght books I read on Richard Nixon was Chris Matthews' "Kenndy and Nixon", which explained the relationship between these two late twentieth century dominating figures. It was interesting and inspired me to learn more about Nixon-not Kennedy whom you hear about almost every day. Ambrose's biography I would call farily honest and does congratulate and call Nioxn on his successes (I think i spelled that right) and failures. I'm now looking for the second volume but as is to my understanding it's out of print so who knows? Worth the time-if you're interested in a good true story.
