Nixon Tapes (WITH AUDIO CLIPS)

An enhanced edition of this huge, fascinating (San Francisco Chronicle) collection of transcripts, including over a dozen audio clips of some of the most newsworthy and jaw-dropping conversations.President Nixon's voice-activated taping system captured every word spoken in the Oval Office, Cabinet Room, and other key locations in the White House, and at Camp David 3,700 hours of recordings between 1971 and 1973. Yet less than 5 percent of those conversations have ever been transcribed and published. Now, thanks to professor Luke Nichter's massive effort to digitize and transcribe the tapes, the world can finally read an unprecedented account of one of the most important and controversial presidencies in U.S. history.The Nixon Tapes,with annotations and commentaryby Nichter and Professor Douglas Brinkley,offers a selection of fascinating scenes from the year Nixon opened relations with China, negotiated the SALT I arms agreement with the Soviet Union, and won a landslide reelection victory. All the while, the growing shadow of Watergate and Nixon's political downfall crept ever closer. The Nixon Tapes provides a unique glimpse into a flawed president's hubris, paranoia, and political genius.
