Abstract:

"This insiders' view of the Nixon presidency through the lens of Fred J. Maroon and the pen of Tom Wicker sheds light on Nixon and this extraordinary and unsettling time."--BOOK JACKET. "Fred Maroon had no way of knowing when he began work on a book project to photograph the new presidency that he would find himself in a unique position to document the events, as they unraveled, of the Watergate crisis. At that time no other outside photographer had been given the kind of access Maroon had to the White House or, later, to the Committee to Re-elect the President. To complete the story of Watergate, Maroon covered the events that followed - the Senate Watergate hearings, the House impeachment hearings, and the final days of the Nixon presidency."--BOOK JACKET.

"Most of the 145 duotone photographs in this remarkable portfolio have never been published before; they are the best of the thousands of pictures Maroon took during Nixon's term of office, from his jubilant inauguration in 1969 to his emotional resignation in 1974. The pictures are direct, powerful documents of a disturbing political era."--BOOK JACKET. "The accompanying text by eminent journalist Tom Wicker, who also had first-hand knowledge of the presidency as a columnist for the New York Times, is an objective, insightful narration of the Nixon years."--BOOK JACKET.
