Description
Between 1971 and 1973, President Richard Nixon's voice-activated taping system captured 3700 hours of recordings, yet less than 5 percent have ever been made public. Luke Nichter transcribed a trove of these off-the-cuff conversations with such figures as Henry Kissinger and H.R. Haldeman, and with Douglas Brinkley's assistance, edited the texts and provided annotated introductions to the excerpts. Here in his own words, Nixon weighs in on events in Vietnam, China, and Russia, and speaks frankly about Leonid Brezhnev, Mao Zedong, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, and the Kennedys. The book also features a timeline of Nixon's presidency and 8 pages of photographs.

"The editors artfully cull from the more than 3500 hours of tapes a fairly coherent documentary record.... The exchanges published here give a more vivid sense than most accounts of the climate of urgency, risk and anticipation that enveloped Nixon's and Kissinger's effort. To witness these two titans of ambition, vainglory and suspicion ... is to receive gritty instruction in statecraft and psychology alike."NYTBR
