Summary
In January 1973, politics in America changed forever as, in the span of 31 days, the Watergate burglars went on trial, the Nixon administration negotiated an end to the Vietnam War, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Roe v. Wade, Lyndon Johnson died in Texas, and Richard Nixon was sworn in for his second term. The events had unlikely links and each worked along with the others to create a time of immense transformation. Using newly released Nixon tapes, author and historian James Robenalt provides readers an insider's look at what happened in the White House, events both fascinating and terrifying, during this monumental month. He also delves into the judge's chambers and courtroom drama during the Watergate break-in trial, and the inner sanctum of the United States Supreme Court as it hashed out its decision in Roe v. Wade. A foreword by John W. Dean sets the stage for this unique history, which details events that, while taking place more than 40 years ago, are key to understanding today's current political paralysis
Summary
Using newly released documents, the Watergate trials, the end of the Vietnam War, Roe versus Wade, Lyndon Johnson's death, and Richard Nixon's second presidential term are explored
