Both maudlin and Machiavellian, Richard Nixon transcended his origins as a shy outcast in Washington society to become a leader capable of great bravery and extraordinary deviousness. Award-winning author Evan Thomas peels back the layers on the nation’s 37th president, delivering a fascinating portrait of one of American history’s most infamous, paradoxical, and enigmatic politicians.
Evan Thomas is the author of The New York Times bestseller, Being Nixon: A Man Divided. Julian E. Zelizer (moderator) is the author of The Fierce Urgency of Now: Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Great Society.
