Watergate: The Corruption of American Politics and the Fall of Richard Nixon

After the outpouring of respect that marked the death of Richard Nixon, Fred Emery's ''Watergate: The Corruption of American Politics and the Fall of Richard Nixon'' is a wrenching reminder of the disgrace in which Nixon resigned the Presidency 20 years ago. Emery, who served as Washington bureau chief for The Times of London in the 's, has written his book in conjunction with a television series on Watergate that will be aired in August on the Discovery Channel. However, the book, which will be published later this month, stands on its own as a comprehensive account of this century's most notorious political scandal, from the earliest discussions in which Nixon aides contemplated illegal buggings and break-ins to Nixon's resignation after it became evident that he had sought to cover up White House crimes. In a brisk and usually lucid style, Mr. Emery recounts this intricate story on a day-by-day, sometimes conversation-by-conversation basis. His narrative is impressively documented, drawing not only on the full range of previously available materials, but also on interviews conducted for the television series and on Nixon tapes released by the National Archives last year.

Featuring a new afterword, this fast-paced, clear, comprehensive account of the Watergate scandal contains new information about the scandal and probes the deep flaws of character that led to it. Here is the definitive history of the Watergate scandal—based on the most recently released tapes, in-depth interview with many of the participants, and hundreds of official and unofficial documents, including notes Halderman omitted from his own published diaries. In this fast-paced, hard-hitting narrative, Fred Emery illuminates as never before the confluence of improbable events, dramatic errors, quirks of fate, and profane character flaws that led to the Watergate scandal. The story begins in From the outset of his tenure in the White House, Nixon was obsessed with the fear of being a one-term president.
