During his presidency, Richard Nixon recorded more than 3,700 hours of his White House and Camp David conversations and now thanks to his conspicuous self-destruction, he will probably forever remain the most documented chief executive of all-time. Until now, less than five percent of these revealing talks have been transcribed and published. That changes with this comprehensive 784-page collection of transcripts, expertly edited by presidential historian Douglas Brinkley and master transcriber Luke Nichter. The Nixon Tapes, 1971-1972 also arrives with digitized audio recordings. A candid self-portrait of a controversial, colorful president; sometimes outrageous, sometimes hilarious, always revealing.
