"The Nixon Tapes, with annotations and commentary by Nichter and Professor Douglas Brinkley, offers a selection of fascinating scenes from the year Nixon opened relations with China, negotiated the SALT I arms agreement with the Soviet Union, and won a landslide reelection victory.  All the while, the growing shadow of Watergate and Nixon’s political downfall crept ever closer.  The Nixon Tapes provides a unique glimpse into a flawed president’s hubris, paranoia, and political genius."
