    The bestselling author of PRESIDENT KENNEDY presents a stunning account of the brilliant and isolated man who destroyed his own presidency. PRESIDENT NIXON shows a man alone in a White House ruled by secrets and lies, trying to impose old values at home and new balances of power everywhere in the world. Reeves proves that the Watergate scandal was no abberation in an administration foreshadowed by a series of successful uses of 'national security' to cover coups, burglaries, lies, the abandonment of America's allies - and ...

AN EXCELLENT, BIASED, WORK

by LucioSergioCatilina on Nov 13, 2007

Mr.Reeves's work is a useful almost day per day account of the days of the first term of Nixon as President of the United States; that is a very good job, very detailed and it makes you feel almost to be there, near the desk of the President, listening the debate of the major issues of the day. Unfortunately, the fact that Reeves is a liberal can be felt throughout the book - only in some parts you are able to forget it - as he takes for granted that the reades shares his feelings towards Nixon (....Rogers was a handsome and charming man, while Nixon was Nixon ... What does it mean ?? ), while he should know that this is not always the case, of course. Then, strangely the work is interrupted at the beginning of the second term of Nixon as President : I can understand that Reeves did not want to write a book about Watergate, but to sum up Nixon one year and a half of the second term with two pages lets you feel that the opera is left incomplete and a very important piece - although sad - of that experience, that is Nixon life at the White House, is overlooked. Why I wouldn't recommend it to a friend ? Because if you don't know already Nixon's White House ( at least on a general scale ), I think you'd get bored by Reeves' work.
