New Book: The Nixon Defense

The Nixon DefenseForty years ago this weekend, President Richard M. Nixon became the only U.S. president to resign from the office.  Former Nixon White House counsel, John W. Dean has written a new book The Nixon Defense: What He Knew and When He Knew It for which he transcribed over 1,000 hours of Executive Office Building tapes to create a definitive record of the Watergate scandal.  A recent New York Times review stated that the book “will remind people of why Nixon deserves so unflattering a historical reputation, despite the opening to China and détente with the Soviet Union. It should also serve as a renewed cautionary tale about elevating politicians with questionable character to high office.”

You can find the book in the Law Library Basement E860 .D385 2014.
