A revelatory new biography that comes closer than ever before to the truth about the dominant U.S. political figure of the late twentieth century--from bestselling author Anthony Summers, whose work The New York Times has called "startlingly impressive"

In this major new investigative work, acclaimed biographer Anthony Summers examines the public life and private affairs of a man whose record and legacy continue to be fiercely debated nearly three decades after he resigned from the presidency. From Nixon's early career in California through his turbulent days in the Oval Office, Summers traces his rise, fall, and reinvention as "great statesman."With research that is both impeccable and unparalleled in scope (more than a thousand interviews were conducted for the book), Summers produces compelling new evidence of Nixon's addiction to intrigue and to money. Here at last is the fullest examination yet of a personality that embraced political brilliance and vindictive, criminal behavior.

The Arrogance of Power will destroy forever the image of Nixon as a tarnished statesman, presenting in its place a stark portrait of a man whose personal torments had a major impact on fifty years of American history.
