Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


No president has covertly taped Oval Office business as thoroughly -- and gotten himself in as much trouble -- as Nixon. He and his heirs fought for years to keep 3,000 hours of these sensitive recordings from ever being released. Now Stanley Kutler, an eminent historian and one of the principal parties to the lawsuit that forced the tapes' release, has edited and annotated every tape concerning abuses of power from Nixon's entire presidency.

Among the breathtaking revelations are Nixon proposing a $5 million scheme to secretly finance a black candidate for president in order to split the Democratic vote; Nixon repeatedly interfering in the Watergate investigation and concocting a series of cover-up stories; and Nixon spying on and harassing George McGovern. Revealing unprecedented details about White House activities -- as well as painting vivid portrait of a paranoid and narcissistic world leader -- Abuse of Power is a repellantly fascinating look into the inner workings of our most notorious presidency.
