Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7-10Fremon tells the story of one of the most famous political scandals of this century. Beginning with the discovery of the burglary team at the Watergate Hotel, the author presents Nixon's hard-driving character through telling incidents in his life. He follows the development of the scandal as someone reading the press of the day might have heard it, systematically laying out the incidents and analysis in the order they were reported. Thus, readers will get a sense of drama as each major fact is revealed, as the president's attackers howl and his supporters drop away, until Nixon appoints a new vice president, resigns, and is pardoned by his appointee. Fremon displays little bias and does not fictionalize at all. His style is admirably clear and lively, and he summarizes important issues effectively. Illustrations, primarily black-and-white photos of the people mentioned in the text, are well distributed throughout. Mark Dudley's United States v. Nixon (21st Century Bks., 1994) and D.J. Herda's United States v. Nixon (Enslow, 1996) concentrate more on the legal issues. Other books on the topic for this age group take a more biographical approach, such as Rebecca Larsen's Richard Nixon (Watts, 1991). Scott Westerfeld's Watergate (Silver Burdett, 1991), although shorter, covers the same information in a bit less detail and has full-color illustrations. Fremon's treatment compares well with all of these titles, but is not sufficiently superior to call for replacement of any of them.Jonathan Betz-Zall, Sno-Isle Regional Library System, Edmonds, WA

    Scandal indeed

    I was expecting more. It was entirely to vague and jumped from one period to the next. Although very acurate it does not seem a good book for avid Nixon/Watergate historians and researchers
