Tricky Dick: The Rise and Fall and Rise of Richard M. Nixon
Bargain Book Copy
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.
