Overview

Originally published in 1975, Elizabeth Drew’s Washington Journal was the book that best captured the extraordinary upheaval of America in the Watergate years. The book that established Drew’s reputation as one of the shrewdest and sharpest writers on American politics, Washington Journal took in the emerging scandal with tremendous clarity and force.
Unfolding over the course of a single year, from September 1973 to August 1974, Washington Journal is the record of the near-dissolution of a nation’s political conscience—told from within. In these pages, we see corruption in its most prosaic and grandest forms, along with occasional flashes of decency, ethics, and humanity, and other sights rarely witnessed in the wilds of the capital. The result is a book that brings to life Washington in all its complexity and contradiction.
Cool and understated—and all the more devastating for its understatement—Washington Journal was hailed upon its publication as a landmark work of journalism. With an introduction that brings this all too relevant book squarely into the present, Washington Journal is available again, at long last, ready for its place in the pantheon of great writing about American politics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Forty years after the greatest scandal of the American presidency, Elizabeth Drew's account in Washington Journal remains fresh and riveting, instructive and evocative. Her afterword on Nixon's post-Watergate life is equally compelling." —-Tom Brokaw
