Summary
What was it really like to be Richard Nixon? Thomas tackles this question by peeling back the layers of a man driven by a poignant mix of optimism and fear. He reveals the contradictions of a leader whose vision and foresight led him to achieve détente with the Soviet Union and reestablish relations with communist China, but whose underhanded political tactics taint his reputation
