Before Twitter There Were The Nixon Tapes

Share

Our fascination with President Richard Nixon long survives the man. Less than 5% of Nixon’s taped conversations have been transcribed and published, but now a new book, the Nixon Tapes 1971-72 takes us into two years of the late President’s conversations and rants. According to GoodreadsThe Nixon Tapes, with annotations and commentary by Luke Nichter and Professor Douglas Brinkley, offers a selection of fascinating scenes from the year Nixon opened relations with China, negotiated the SALT I arms agreement with the Soviet Union, and won a landslide reelection victory. All the while, the growing shadow of Watergate and Nixon’s political downfall crept ever closer. The Nixon Tapes provides a unique glimpse into a flawed president’s hubris, paranoia, and political genius.”
