Download Free Richard M. Nixon PDF by Conrad Black Full Book and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2008-10-23 with total page 360 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the late 1940s to the mid-1970s, Richard Nixon was a polarizing figure in American politics, admired for his intelligence, savvy, and strategic skill, and reviled for his shady manner and cutthroat tactics. Conrad Black, whose epic biography of FDR was widely acclaimed as a masterpiece, now separates the good in Nixon -- his foreign initiatives, some of his domestic policies, and his firm political hand -- from the sinister, in a book likely to generate enormous attention and controversy. Black believes the hounding of Nixon from office was partly political retribution from a lifetime's worth of enemies and Nixon's misplaced loyalty to unworthy subordinates, and not clearly the consequence of crimes in which he participated. Conrad Black's own recent legal travails, though hardly comparable, have undoubtedly given him an unusual insight into the pressures faced by Nixon in his last two years as president and the first few years of his retirement.

Download Free Nixon's Secrets PDF by Roger J. Stone Full Book and published by Skyhorse + ORM. This book was released on 2014-08-11 with total page 505 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The inside scoop from a New York Times–bestselling author who “really understands Nixon” (President Donald Trump). In this new book, Roger Stone, the New York Times–bestselling author of The Man Who Killed Kennedy—the Case Against LBJ, gives the inside story on Nixon’s rise and fall in Watergate. Stone charts Nixon’s rise from election to Congress in 1946 to the White House in 1968, after his razor-thin loss to John Kennedy in 1960, his disastrous campaign for governor of California in 1962, and the greatest comeback in American Presidential history, arguing that “just as the assassination of JFK prevents a balanced analysis of Kennedy and his times, the myth of Watergate prevents a reappraisal of the 37th President.” Stone reveals how the Kennedys wiretapped Nixon’s hotel room the night before the Nixon-Kennedy debate and stole Nixon's medical records from his psychiatrist’s office. He also lays out how Kennedy’s running mate, Lyndon Johnson, stole Texas from JFK through vote fraud while Mayor Richard Daley stole Illinois and how JFK actually lost the popular vote. Stone looks at the Nixon Presidency: the desegregation of the public schools, the progressive social programs, Nixon's struggle to end the war in Vietnam, the historic SALT arms reduction agreement with Russia, the saving of Israel in the Six Day War, the opening to China, and the disastrous decision to take America off the Gold standard. “The mainstream media’s interpretation of the facts surrounding the Watergate episode are a fantastic and grotesque distortion of historical truth,” says Stone. “Cursory examination of the facts in Watergate will reveal that the actions which caused the fall of Nixon cannot be reduced to the simplistic account summarized by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post.” The author outlines how White House Counsel John Dean planned, pushed, and covered-up the Watergate break-in, then sought to avoid responsibility for it. He examines the bungled Watergate break-in to determine what exactly Nixon’s agents were looking for and how the CIA infiltrated the burglar team and sabotaged the break-in to gain leverage over Nixon. Find out why Nixon demanded the CIA turn over the records of the Bay of Pigs and Kennedy Assassination. Learn how a cabal of military and intelligence hard-liners spied on and undermined Nixon to stop his pro-peace détente foreign policy, his withdrawal of troops from Vietnam, his arms limitation agreement with the Soviets, and his opening to Red China. Discover how Vice President Spiro Agnew was set up to move him out of the line of presidential succession. Stone makes the compelling case that General Alexander Haig orchestrated Nixon’s removal from office in a coup d’état and brokered the deal for his pardon. Finally the public will learn what is on the 18 ½ minute gap in the White House tapes. Stone, a Washington insider for forty years, outlines why FBI Man Mark Felt is not Deep Throat, why there is no Deep Throat, and why Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein lie about it even today. He reveals how Nixon used the dark secrets he knew to avoid prosecution by blackmailing Gerald Ford for a full free and unconditional pardon. Nixon’s secret would not only destroy his presidency—it would save him from prison and allow him to launch his final comeback, advising President Bill Clinton on foreign affairs despite Hillary’s attempts to block him and her being fired from the 1974 House Impeachment Committee for lying and violating Nixon’s rights.

Download Free Richard M. Nixon PDF by Elizabeth Drew Full Book and published by Times Books. This book was released on 2007-05-29 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The complex man at the center of America's most self-destructive presidency In this provocative and revelatory assessment of the only president ever forced out of office, the legendary Washington journalist Elizabeth Drew explains how Richard M. Nixon's troubled inner life offers the key to understanding his presidency. She shows how Nixon was surprisingly indecisive on domestic issues and often wasn't interested in them. Turning to international affairs, she reveals the inner workings of Nixon's complex relationship with Henry Kissinger, and their mutual rivalry and distrust. The Watergate scandal that ended his presidency was at once an overreach of executive power and the inevitable result of his paranoia and passion for vengeance. Even Nixon's post-presidential rehabilitation was motivated by a consuming desire for respectability, and he succeeded through his remarkable resilience. Through this book we finally understand this complicated man. While giving him credit for his achievements, Drew questions whether such a man--beleaguered, suspicious, and motivated by resentment and paranoia--was fit to hold America's highest office, and raises large doubts that he was.
Download Free Rear Admiral Larry Chambers, USN PDF by Ric Murphy Full Book and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2018-01-12 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The first African-American aircraft carrier commander, Rear Admiral Lawrence Cleveland Chambers (1929– ) played a prominent role as captain of the USS Midway during the Vietnam War. During the evacuation of Saigon—known as Operation Frequent Wind—he famously ordered several UH-1 helicopters pushed overboard to make room for an escaping South Vietnamese Air Force major to land his Cessna. Chambers, who had only commanded Midway for a few weeks, gave the order believing (wrongly) that he would be court-martialed for the $10 million loss. This biography covers his early life and military career, including his role in the desegregation of the U.S. Navy during a period racial strife.
Download Free The Nixon Presidency PDF by Timothy N. Thurber Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2022-03-31 with total page 186 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Nixon Presidency is a concise and accessible survey of domestic policy, foreign affairs, and politics during the thirty-seventh president’s time in office. Richard Nixon was the most polarizing president of the twentieth century and one who continues to fascinate observers of American political life. Admirers saw him as the personification of the American dream of upward mobility and their ally against threats at home and abroad. Detractors considered him a deceitful, sinister figure who threatened democracy, was wrapped up in Watergate, and perpetuated an immoral war in Vietnam. As time passes, new questions and insights into the Nixon era arise and various phenomena, such as the expansion of the welfare state, the growth of the administrative state, the evolution of the Republican and Democratic Parties, and the deepening polarization in politics and the broader society, cast Nixon’s presidency in a new light. This book uses Nixon as a prism through which to view American history at home and abroad and shows how Nixon’s influence remains evident half a century after he left office. The text is supported by primary source documents, which makes it ripe for classroom use and key for students of American history, the American presidency, and the sixties.
Download Free Tricky Dick PDF by Roger J. Stone Full Book and published by Skyhorse. This book was released on 2017-07-11 with total page 720 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A warts and all biography of the most enduring American politician of the twentieth century. Drawing on his unprecedented access and insight about the 37th president, New York Times–bestselling author Roger Stone and his co-author, award-winning investigative reporter Michael Colapietro, look at the totality of Richard Nixon’s career, utilizing stunning new information either suppressed or unknown by the mainstream media of the time. Stone and his co-author trace Nixon’s meteoric climb, from his first race for the House in 1947, his dogged pursuit of Soviet spy Alger Hiss (classified Russian documents released after the fall of the Soviet Union prove Hiss was indeed a KGB Spy), to Nixon’s bruising campaign for the US Senate in 1950, his improbable selection by General Dwight D. Eisenhower to be vice president only six years after his election to Congress, the triumphs and humiliations of his vice presidential years, and his razor thin loss of the presidency to John F. Kennedy in 1960. Tricky Dick proves in intricate detail how the 1960 election was stolen from a surging Nixon, detailing voter fraud in both Texas and Illinois to a degree heretofore undocumented by political scientists and covered only by the New York Herald Tribune at the time. These New York Times–bestselling authors also detail Nixon’s reinvention of himself as “the New Nixon” and the greatest single comeback in American history, culminating with Nixon’s triumphant election as president in 1968. Tricky Dick also dissects the military industrial complex unhappiness with Nixon’s end to the war in Vietnam, his historic strategic arms limitation agreement with the Soviets, his opening to China, and the resultant plot to bring Nixon down in the scandal known today as Watergate. “I knew Nixon in the late 80’s. I met him in George Steinbrenner’s box at Yankee Stadium. Roger Stone nails it. He really understands Nixon.” —Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States

This book was released on 2014-02-05 with total page 239 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: David A. J. Richards’s Resisting Injustice and The Feminist Ethics of Care in The Age of Obama: "Suddenly,...All The Truth Was Coming Out" builds on his and Carol Gilligan’s The Deepening Darkness to examine the roots of the resistance movements of the 1960s, the political psychology behind contemporary conservatism, and President Obama’s present-day appeal as well as the reasons for the reactionary politics against him. Richards begins by laying out the basics of the ethics of care and proposing an alternative basis for ethics: relationality, which is based in convergent findings in infant research, neuroscience, and evolutionary psychology. He critically analyzes patriarchal politics and states that they are rooted in a reactionary psychology that attacks human relationality and ethics. From there, the book examines the 1960s resistance movements and argues that they were fundamentally oriented around challenging patriarchy. Richards asserts that the reactionary politics in America from the 1960s to the present are in service of an American patriarchy threatened by the resistance movements ranging from the 1960s civil rights movements to the present gay rights movement. Reactionary politics intend to marginalize and even reverse the ethical achievements accomplished by resistance movements—creating, in effect, a system of patriarchy hiding in democracy. Richards consequently argues that Obama’s appeal is connected to his challenge to this system of patriarchy and will examine both Obama’s appeal and the reactions against him in light of the 2012 presidential election. This book positions recent American political development in a broad analysis of the role of patriarchy in human oppression throughout history, and argues that a feminist-based ethics of care is necessary to form a more humane and inclusive democratic politics.

Download Free Planet Neptune and the Modern Us Presidents: Franklin Roosevelt to Barack Obama PDF by Suzanne Angioli Full Book and published by Balboa Press. This book was released on 2016-04-05 with total page 468 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While studying the astrological birth charts of all the US presidents, I discovered that those of the thirteen modern US presidents, from Franklin Roosevelt to Barack Obama, all had the natal Sun (the planet most associated with ones basic identity) making an aspect (certain designated degrees between two planets) to their natal Neptune. This was surprising since I would have thought that politicians, particularly those aspiring to the presidency, would have an overwhelming emphasis on the Sun-Mars aspect, but not on the Sun-Neptune aspect. What I discovered in my research was that good politicians are not warriors (Sun-Mars) per se who use the techniques of warfare to muscle their way through adversity. Rather, they are good actors (Sun-Neptune) who are essentially chameleons (Sun-Neptune) operating in the foggy (Neptune) realm of subtlety (Neptune) and seduction, using their sensitivity (Neptune) and charm (Neptune) to serve their intuitive (Neptune) sides to try to achieve their goals. It became apparent that a good politician is excellent at assuming different roles in order to fit a given political situation and move his agenda forward. The Sun in aspect to Neptune is not unusual, but there is no aggregate population that has 100 percent of its members with this aspect like the modern presidents. I was intrigued with this occurrence and thus set out to research their individual biographies to see just how this aspect played out in their lives. After all, it seemed to be almost a prerequisite for being elected to the modern Oval Office.

Book excerpt: With the publication of his Personal Memoirs in 1885, Ulysses S. Grant established what is today known as the presidential memoir. Every U.S. president since Benjamin Harrison has written one and many have turned to other forms of writing, as well. This book covers the history of works—including autobiographies, diaries, political manifestos, speeches, fiction and poetry—authored by U.S. presidents and published prior to, during or after their terms. The writing was easy for some, harder for others, with varying success, from literary comebacks and bestsellers to false starts and failures.
Download Free Richard Nixon PDF by John Farrell Full Book and published by . This book was released on 2017-10 with total page 752 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Richard Nixon opens with Navy lieutenant 'Nick' Nixon returning from the Pacific and setting his cap at Congress, an idealistic dreamer seeking to build a better world. Yet amid the turns of that now legendary 1946 campaign, Nixon's finer attributes quickly gave way to unapologetic ruthlessness.Four years after that win, Nixon would be a US senator; six, the vice president of the United States of America. Finally president, Nixon's staff was full of bright young men who devised forward-thinking reforms addressing healthcare, poverty, civil rights, and environmental protections. It was a fine legacy, but Nixon cared little for it. He aspired to make his mark on the world stage instead, and his 1972 opening to China was the first great crack in the Cold War.Nixon had another legacy, too- an America divided and polarised. It was Nixon who launched the McCarthy era, who set South against North, and who spurred the Silent Majority to distrust the country's elites. He persuaded Americans to gnaw, as he did, on grievances - and to look at one another as enemies. Finally, in August 1974, after two years of the mesmerising intrigue and scandal known as Watergate, Nixon became the only president to resign in disgrace.This is an enthralling tour-de-force biography of the darkest US president, a magisterial portrait of a man who embodied postwar American cynicism.'Farrell's blockbuster portrait of Nixon is revelatory - filled with fresh reporting shedding new light on the roots of our own dark political moment. He shows that dirty tricks, October Surprises, and anti-elitist resentment were among the gifts Nixon bequeathed to our own presidential politics.
