Nixon Profiled Anew: "One Man Against The World"

One_Man-Against-Book.jpg
Henry Holt and Company
/

  Richard Nixon managed to keep voluminous records of his activities and simultaneously desire to keep complete control over information about himself and his presidency.  It did NOT end well.

And with newly-declassified documents available through the years, we learn even more about Nixon's practices and paranoia. 

Tim Weiner provides a fresh portrait of the late president, in his book One Man Against the World: The Tragedy of Richard Nixon.

Author Weiner joins us to talk about his portrayal.
