Sample text

There was no realistic chance for publication after these horrific events occurred. Phillip Andrews wrote the first published biography of Richard Nixon, a 63-page pamphlet entitled This Man Nixon (1952). Andrews briefly chronicled Nixon’s pre-political years. Inaccuracies were prevalent throughout the text (and in the photo captions, as well). For example, Richard Nixon’s birthday was listed as January 3, 1913. The year was correct but the date was off by six days. The author also erred on the year and date of Pat’s birth, a common mistake found in many of the early Nixon biographies.

Realist) course in foreign policy. Parmet is clear that the age of Nixon was characterized by his protagonist’s effort to chart a middle-way course between traditional Republicanism and modern liberalism to deal with the socio-economic and international challenges facing postwar America. This rich and fascinating study only works up to a point, however. How Watergate fits into its thesis is never properly explained. Parmet resolves the conundrum largely by ignoring what he calls a scandal, a term that implicitly downplays its significance.

Much of the analysis is inferential because Nixon was never on any author’s couch. Nor have any mined the Nixon papers as these became increasingly available. There is also a tendency to exaggerate Nixon the individual without full consideration of the historical and institutional contexts in which he operated. Moreover, skeptics might contend that there is usually a plausible alternative to the psychoanalytic explanation of his conduct. For example, Volkan and his co-authors see Nixon’s 1969 decision to drop his middle initial “M” (for Milhous, Hannah’s family name) as a declaration of independence from his recently deceased mother, but it may well have been part of a public-relations strategy to appear less formal in the eyes of the now all-important “middle-American” constituency.
