Richard Nixon: The Life by John A. FarrellBrilliantly researched, authoritatively crafted by a prize-winning biographer, and lively on the page, this is the Nixon weve been waiting for.
Richard Nixon opens with young Navy lieutenant Nick Nixon returning from the Pacific and setting his cap at Congress, an idealistic dreamer seeking to build a better world. Yet amid the turns of that now legendary 1946 campaign, Nixons finer attributes quickly gave way to unapologetic ruthlessness. It is a stunning overture to John A. Farrells magisterial portrait of a man who embodied postwar American cynicism.
Within four years of that first win, Nixon would be a U.S. senator; in six the vice president of the United States of America. Few came so far, so fast, and so alone, Farrell writes. Finally president, Nixons staff was full of bright young men who devised forward-thinking reforms addressing health care, poverty, civil rights, and protection of the environment. It was a fine legacy, but Nixon cared little for it. He aspired to make his mark on the world stage instead, and his 1972 opening to China was the first great crack in the Cold War.
Nixon had another legacy, too: an America divided and polarized. It was Nixon who launched the McCarthy era, who set South against North, and who spurred the Silent Majority to despise and distrust the countrys elites. He persuaded Americans to gnaw, as he did, on grievances—and to look at one another as enemies. Finally, in August 1974, after two years of the mesmerizing intrigue and scandal known as Watergate, Nixon became the only president to resign in disgrace.
Richard Nixon is an enthralling tour de force biography of our darkest president, one that reviewers will hail as a defining portrait, and the full life of Nixon readers have awaited
