Richard M. Nixonby Michael A. Schuman
Richard M. Nixon staged one of the greatest comebacks in political history to become president, then went on to earn the respect of many for his foreign policies. He opened up relations with China, and helped bring closure to the long Vietnam War. However, the disgrace of the Watergate scandal caused him to resign the office of the presidency. He was the only president to do so. In his retirement, Nixon came back again, as an advisor to future presidents. In Richard M. Nixon, Revised Edition, author Michael A. Schuman describes the family man who proved to be a tough opponent in the political arena. His entire life is considered, from his humble beginnings in the small towns of southern California, through his tumultuous presidency, to his retirement in this updated book.
