A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

This mesmerizing chronicle of Nixon's rise to power and the events he shaped that changed forever America's political history took seven years to prepare and is the work of an award-winning historian, scholar, and journalist.

Critique:

Weighing in at over 1,000 pages, Richard Milhous Nixon: The Rise of an American Politician is undoubtedly the most detailed single volume on the political career of the disgraced ex-president. But the events in this book take place decades before the Watergate scandal, in an era when many were unsure whether Nixon might ever climb to heights of power from which to topple. After covering the first 33 years of Nixon's life in about 300 pages, Roger Morris immerses the reader in the major controversies of Nixon's time on Capitol Hill: the Alger Hiss case, the hotly contested California Senate race against Democrat incumbent Helen Douglas, and the charges of improper conduct that rocked the 1952 presidential campaign and motivated a desperate Nixon to make an appeal to the American public on live television (the speech is perhaps best remembered for his invocation of the family dog, Checkers). Morris takes Nixon to his 1953 inauguration, leaving the reader in no doubt of what it cost Nixon, the Republican Party, and America to make that moment happen. --Ron Hogan
