Product Description
<div>The famous -- and infamous -- Nixon White House tapes that reveal for<br>the first time President Richard Nixon uncensored, unfiltered, and in his<br>own words<br><br>President Nixon's voice-activated taping system captured every word<br>spoken in the Oval Office, Cabinet Room, and other key locations in the<br>White House, and at Camp David -- 3,700 hours of recordings between<br>1971 and 1973. Yet less than 5 percent of those conversations have ever<br>been transcribed and published. Now, thanks to professor Luke Nichter's<br>massive effort to digitize and transcribe the tapes, the world can finally<br>read an unprecedented account of one of the most important and<br>controversial presidencies in U.S. history.<br><br>The Nixon Tapes offers a selection of fascinating scenes from the<br>year Nixon opened relations with China, negotiated the SALT I arms<br>agreement with the Soviet Union, and won a landslide reelection victory.<br>All the while, the growing shadow of Watergate and Nixon's political<br>downfall crept ever closer. The Nixon Tapes provides a never-before-seen<br>glimpse into a flawed president's hubris, paranoia, and political genius.</div>
