    Elizabeth Drew is the award-winning author of thirteen previous books, includingWashington Journal, Politics and Money, Whatever It Takes: The Real Struggle for Political Power in America, andThe Corruption of American Politics. She is a regular political correspondent forThe New York Review of Books and the former Washington correspondent for The New Yorker. She lives and works in Washington, D.C.
    The complex man at the center of America's most self-destructive presidency. In this revelatory assessment of the only president ever forced out of office, Washington journalist Drew explains how Nixon's troubled inner life offers the key to understanding his presidency. She shows how Nixon was surprisingly indecisive on domestic issues and often wasn't interested in them. Turning to international affairs, she reveals the inner workings of Nixon's complex relationship with Henry Kissinger, and their mutual rivalry and distrust. The Watergate scandal that ended his presidency was both an overreach of executive power and the inevitable result of his paranoia and passion for vengeance. Even Nixon's post-presidential rehabilitation was motivated by a consuming desire for respectability, and he succeeded through his remarkable resilience. While giving him credit for his achievements, Drew questions whether such a man--beleaguered, suspicious, and motivated by resentment and paranoia--was fit to hold America'shighest office.--From publisher description.Argues that Richard Nixon's troubled inner life holds the key to understanding his administration, examining his complex relationship with Henry Kissinger, his attitude toward domestic issues and foreign affairs, the Watergate scandal, and his post-presidential career.
