Overview

"Watergate and the Resignation of Richard Nixon: Impact of a Constitutional Crisis places Watergate and the president's resignation in historical perspective, providing cogent analysis and a balanced assessment of the origins, development, and consequences of this unique and traumatic chain of events in American political history." Topical essays by political, legal, history, and communications scholars examine the effects of the crisis over time. Primary source materials, including transcripts from oral interviews, Nixon's speeches, the infamous Watergate tapes, excerpts from congressional hearings, the proposed articles of impeachment, U.S. Supreme Court opinions, political cartoons, and more are put in context with explanatory headnotes. The foreword by John W. Dean, former Nixon White House counsel, provides valuable insight into the scandal and its historical implications.
