Overview

" A] fascinating and devastatingly accurate portrait of the 37th president . . . Groundbreaking." San Francisco Chronicle

Presents a clear, fly-on-the-wall view of Nixon s White House . . . A monumental accomplishment. USA Today

President Nixon s voice-activated taping system captured every word spoken in the Oval Office, the Cabinet Room, and other key locations in the White House and at Camp David in all, 3,700 hours of recordings between 1971 and 1973. Yet less than 5 percent of those conversations have ever been transcribed and published. Now the world can finally read an unprecedented account of one of the most important and controversial presidencies in U.S. history.

The Nixon Tapes, with annotations and commentary by Professors Luke Nichter and Douglas Brinkley, offers a selection of fascinating scenes from the years Nixon opened relations with China, negotiated the SALT I arms agreement with the Soviet Union, and won a landslide reelection victory, while the growing shadow of Watergate and Nixon s political downfall crept ever closer.The Nixon Tapesprovides a unique glimpse into a flawed president s hubris, paranoia, and political genius.

A treasure trove. Boston Globe

Strangely addictive.
