Overview

"Small's book has the qualities we have come to expect from the American Presidency Series: comprehensive without being overwhelming, reflecting current scholarship, balanced in its judgments (no mean feat when dealing with Nixon), and a pleasure to read. Recommended without reservation."—Stephen E. Ambrose, author of Nixon and Undaunted Courage

It's certain to set the standard on this subject for years."—Allen J. Matusow, author of Nixon's Economy

"Skillfully balances Nixon's impressive achievements against his poisonous cynicism and deceitfulness."—Hugh Davis Graham, coeditor of The Carter Presidency
