Item Details

From one of America's most talented historians comes a brilliant new account of Richard Nixon--set against the violent passions of America's 1960s civil war--that reveals the riveting backstory to the red state/blue state resentments that divide the nation today and the many ways Nixon used riots, anti-Vietnam War protests, the drug culture and other displays of unrest as an easy relief against which to frame his pitch for his narrow win of 1968 and landslide victory of 1972.
