Availability: Ready to download

The startling truth—Rowland Evans and Robert Novak argue in this book—is that Richard Nixon, having hungered for the office of the Presidency for sixteen years has not known what to do with the immense power he craved so long. Again and again he has come up against the frustration of power. In this extraordinary political profile the authors of Lyndon B.

Again and again he has come up against the frustration of power. In this extraordinary political profile the authors of Lyndon B. Johnson: The Exercise of Power dissect every aspect of the Nixon administration to date. They show why, almost from the very beginning “the frustration of power” has characterized the Nixon Presidency, and how the reason lies in the personality of Richard Nixon himself—“a complicated, enigmatic man—sometimes super-pragmatic, sometimes doctrinaire, sometimes decisive, but always alone and sometimes lonely.”

    The edition I read was from 1969 to 1972. Being published around the time of Watergate, before the scandal erupted, the book was interesting for the contemporary view of the times alone. Additionally, Evans and Novak were incredibly accurate on a number of events, as history later revealed. Details of the Congressional-Presidential relationship were excellent. In the end, it's from a Nixon apologist point of view. The edition I read was from 1969 to 1972.
