One Man Against the World: The Tragedy of Richard Nixon

Enemies. The criminal behavior of Richard Nixon while president of the United States may have been a turning point in the attitude of citizens about political leadership. Tim Weiner presents a fresh look at Nixon in his book titled, One Man Against the World: The Tragedy of Richard Nixon. Thanks to the ongoing release of documents and tape recordings, more is known now than in the past about what happened during the Nixon presidency. It was even worse than I imagined. Nixon’s focus on enemies, domestic and foreign, real and imagined, became all-consuming. His duplicity at the time he was in office led me to a rule of thumb about most politicians: whenever they say, “this is not about x,” it is most certainly all about x. Readers interested in politics and recent history will find a lot to enjoy in this finely written book. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase One Man Against the World from
