Editorial Reviews

“This collection of excellent analyses reminds us that Watergate was much more than an illegal break-in; the ‘White House horrors’ included financial corruption, illegal wiretaps, suborning perjury, abuse of power, obstruction of justice, and undermining the electoral process. For those who remember Watergate, the collection provides a stark reminder of the turbulent times that led to the resignation of Richard Nixon. For those who are too young to remember Watergate, it provides an in-depth case study of the tragedy that Richard Nixon inflicted upon himself and the country. The essays in this book are not merely of historical interest; they trace the ripples of Watergate through the past 40 years and reveal the broader ramifications of this defining episode in twentieth century American history. Anyone interested in American politics will learn much from this book.”--James P. Pfiffner, George Mason University  “In this book, leading American and British scholars demonstrate Watergate's lasting impact upon American politics and national institutions. The scandal reshaped the separation of powers, campaign finance law, presidential war powers, and the president's relationship with the public. Its effects reached far into American culture and media. The book's thoughtful contributors illuminate the scandal as one of the signal events in American political history. It is essential reading for students of American politics, history, and the American presidency.”--Steve Schier, Congdon Professor of Political Science, Carleton College
