Book summary

"Richard Nixon and His America" is an informed portrait of a commanding political figure of our day. The first view to utilize the newly opened files from the White House, and with the advantage of exclusive cooperation from the former President and interviews with important political figures of the time (friends and enemies), this work offers a comprehensive coverage of events and personalities that explains both the country and the man. Exploring such important issues as Communism and America's place in global politics, it exposes the mind and personality of Richard Nixon and discovers what he represents in American history and culture. Parmet neither builds up nor attacks Nixon's reputation but studies the ways he reflected long-standing strains and strong sentiments in American life. The book aims to provide both an understanding of what led to the Watergate scandal and a knowledge of the America of the past 20 years. [via]
