Hersh takes us through the past and the years of Nixon and Watergate. It should be noted that Hersh has an ax to grind, is a liberal thinker and write, and his bias is strong throughout the book. Still, the facts--very carefully annotated by the author--leave no doubt that Nixon and Kissinger both were despicable. I am a conservative and lifelong Republican, but I winced many times over as I read things I never know and/or didn't believe when I heard them years ago. The petty selfishness of educated grown men in positions of power only proves the adages that 'power corrupts' and 'absolute power corrupts absolutely.' It seems a total shame that in the 40+ years since these events took place, we Americans have learned little about the corruption and power politics by both parties, and reinforces my belief that TERM LIMITS for ALL elected officials is an absolute if we are to save our republic from ruin by greedy, mean spirited and over bearing fuss pots and LIARS. Thank you Mr. Hersh for all the work you did on this fantastic volume of the 37th President and his #1 toady.
