Sample text

This is quite a variance with his conduct as revealed on the Watergate tapes when finally released (Kutler 1997). Moreover, there is no recognition that Watergate was a crisis of the imperial presidency rather than a mere presidential scandal pertaining to a cover-up of political espionage. According to chief editorial assistant Frank Gannon, Nixon laid down his memoir-writing philosophy in no uncertain terms to the staff helping him with the research and writing: “We won’t grovel; we won’t confess; we won’t do a mea culpa act; but we will be one hundred per cent accurate” (Aitken 1993: 538).

Measured by this criterion, however, it could only be the opening shot in a campaign that would succeed well beyond what might have looked possible on August 8, 1974 without ever doing so in absolute terms. Finally, some authorities consider it the best book on Nixon’s life and career (Black 2007). This judgment arguably overlooks the superior merit of historian Stephen Ambrose’s three-volume study (Ambrose 1987, 1989, 1991). Nevertheless, the claim is not so far-fetched that it can be dismissed out of hand, which itself is testimony to the limitations of Nixon biography.
