BeschreibungThis book examines Richard Nixon's place in history, from his many achievements to his notable shortcomings to the Watergate scandal which has often defined his presidency. In his lifetime Nixon attempted to change perspectives to remodel his shattered image and portray himself as a great leader brought down by one mistake. Since his death in 1994, historians have been reassessing his achievements and in this latest addition to the "Reputations" series the Nixon presidency is reexamined to discern how Nixon's reputation has evolved and how far it corresponds to his actions and their effects.
