Being Nixon: A Man Divided

In Being Nixon, Evan Thomas peels away the layers of the complex, confounding figure who became America’s 37th president. Drawing on a wide range of historical accounts, Thomas reveals the contradictions of a leader whose vision and foresight led him to achieve détente with the Soviet Union and reestablish relations with communist China, but whose underhanded political tactics tainted his reputation long before the Watergate scandal. Like no other, Thomas brilliantly portrays a president capable of great bravery and extraordinary deviousness. (Book signing to follow.)
