About this product
- DescriptionNo President has taped Oval conversations so thoroughly or found himself in as much trouble as Richard Nixon. He and his heirs fought for years to keep hours of these sensitive recordings from ever being released. Now Stanley I. Kutler, an emminent historian and one of the principle parties to the lawsuit that forced the tapes release, has edited and antated every tape concerning abuses of power from Nixon's entire presidency. Among the breathtaking revelations are evidence of Nixon's direct role in the obstruction of justice during the 'Watergate' investigation to the proposal for a $5 million scheme to secretly finance a black candidate for president in order to split the democratic vote. Nixon's own voice and those of his closest advisors expose an administration steeped in corruption. Revealing unprecedented details about White House activities as well as painting a vivid portrait of a paraid and narcissistic world leader - ABUSE OF POWER is a fascinating look into the inner workings of America's most torious presidency.
