America's leading liberal journalist revisits the case of Richard Nixon and brings back a surprising rereading of contemporary history. Much has been written about the former president, including no less than three autobiographies, but until now, no one has captured the essence of the man or pinpointed how he has managed to preoccupy our political consciousness for nearly four decades.

Publishers Weekly, 1991-01-18 New York Times columnist Wicker examines the formative influences on Nixon's character and personality, recounts the traumas and triumphs of his public life, and finds much to admire about the man. He lauds Nixon's devotion to his gentle Quaker mother (proving himself worthy of her grace, Wicker believes, has always been a prime motivator); he praises Nixon's ``underrated and unrecognized'' domestic achievements while questioning his supposed mastery of foreign affairs. Wicker eschews retelling the Watergate saga but details the events leading up to it, offering explanations as to why Nixon didn't immedately expose--instead of attempt to cover-up--an illicit plan he hadn't authorized. With a wealth of new material obtained in interviews with longtime Nixon associates and from his own perceptive observations, Wicker succeeds in humanizing Nixon to a remarkable degree in this notably fair and evenhanded portrait of the public and private man.
