Despite an abundance of literature on Nixon, the man behind the most spectacular crash-&-burn career of modern political history has remained an enigma. This is the first thoroughgoing psychol. portrait of the 37th pres., drawing upon telling interviews with Nixon intimates, published & archived materials, & employing a rigorous psychoanalytic methodology. Tracing the development of Nixon's complex psyche, the authors provide new insight not only into his unconscious motivations but also into the way they influenced his political actions. A more nuanced, more humanized Nixon emerges in a book that also provides compelling evidence that the politics of a nation is subject to the unconscious needs, fears, & fantasies of its leaders.
