No one can dispute the fact that Richard M. Nixon’s life story is immensely engaging and that his place in the scheme of modern history will always be a landmark. Stephen E. Ambrose offers a balanced, unflinching portrait of one of our most complex and puzzling chief executives at the apogee of his career, rebounding from defeat to an innovative, high-risk presidency, already sowing the seeds of his ruin.
"If there is a better historian than Stephen Ambrose at work on the events and personalities of our time, that person has not been discovered. Nixon: The Triumph of a Politician is the most accurate and compelling volume on Richard Nixon’s tempestuous decade of defeat, resurrection and disaster." (Hugh Sidey, American journalist and New York Times best-selling author)
"Most previous biographies of Nixon have either been admiring political studies or hatchet jobs by obvious enemies. Ambrose rights both their wrongs…. Masterful biography." (Kirkus Reviews)
"The author writes disarmingly…. He offers a more rounded and detailed view of Richard M. Nixon - his instinctive reactions, patterns of thought, prejudices, convictions, and accomplishments - than has yet been published…. A thorough analysis." (Publishers Weekly)
