A Companion to Richard M. Nixon

Compelled to resign in 1974 during his second term in the Oval Office, Richard M. Nixon was a controversial and especially consequential figure in modern American history who left an indelible mark on American politics and culture. This companion offers an overview of Nixon's life, presidency and legacy, as well as a detailed look at the central arguments and scholarly debates that surround his term in office.

The essays examine his early years in California through to his three campaigns for Congress, his vice-presidency, his presidency, and his legacy. An extensive section on his presidential years includes coverage of domestic issues, the elections, foreign policy, and Watergate. The paper and electronic documents recently released from the Nixon Presidential Materials Project are also incorporated throughout.

A Companion to Richard M. Nixon brings together the world's leading Nixon experts from the United States and abroad in an essential guide to the historical, political, cultural, and psychological analyses of the 37th president of the United States and the evolution and current state of Nixon scholarship.
