John W Dean The Nixon Defense

June 5, 201513 min
The Nixon Defense is not only a compelling and historic account of Watergate itself, but a stunning portrait of Nixon and his aides, along with the cynicism, paranoia, and vindictiveness that were so often the driving forces of the president and his inner circle. The Nixon Defense is an unprecedented examination of what brought down a president, and will stand as the authoritative account of Watergate. About the Author: JOHN W.
