Sample text

In Mazlish’s pre-Watergate estimate, the president’s insecurity in not knowing himself could create serious problems for his administration and the nation. In Abrahamsen’s post-Watergate analysis, the possibility became proven in his portrayal of Nixon as engaged in constant struggle between two different sides of his personality. The effect was a string of psychological disorders that included being obsessive-compulsive, self-hating, hysterical, masochistic, uncertain of his masculinity, and even psychopathic, all of which made it difficult for him to link morality and behavior.

It keeps the historical lens on the obstruction-of-justice issue, as Nixon preferred, and tends to underplay his abuses of power that were quantitatively and qualitatively of a different scale than those practiced by previous occupants of the White House. At 1,059 pages of text, the book could have done with tighter editing to reduce its length, but important episodes in Nixon’s career are still given short shrift, notably his record on civil rights that manifested important innovations in public-school desegregation and affirmative action.

This announcement appeared amid the description of Harold Nixon’s long-suffering bout with tuberculosis. Neither years nor the dates of death for either brother were revealed in this confusing account (Mazo 1959: 20). Mazo presented significant new information about Richard Nixon’s South Pacific Command Air Transport (SCAT) naval-service duty based upon interviews with navy personnel who had known Nixon during the war. Lester Wroble described Nixon’s outpost at Green Island, where he set up “Nixon’s Hamburger Stand” and demonstrated a talent at procuring hard-to-find items, like bourbon.
