Maroon, a freelance photographer who has covered Washington for nearly 50 years, here presents a record of 145 black-and-white photographs showing the Nixon years from the President's triumphant inauguration in 1969 to his anguished, dispirited resignation in August 1974. This volume accompanies Maroon's exhibition, which appeared during 1999 at the Smithsonian Museum of American History. Wicker, former Washington bureau chief for the New York Times and author of the sympathetic One of Us: Richard Nixon and the American Dream, provides a brief narrative about the Nixon years and the lasting destructive Watergate legacy. The uniformly excellent photographs provide a visual account of the always formal Nixon staff but also include many distinctive shots, such as Richard and Pat Nixon relaxing on the beach at San Clemente; a smirking, arrogant Jeb Magruder, deputy director of the Committee to Re-Elect the President, before pleading guilty to obstruction of justice; and John Lennon and Yoko Ono watching the Senate Watergate hearings. Augmenting the pictures are often humorous, gossipy anecdotes about Maroon's famous and notorious subjects. The pictures express troubled emotions more effectively than words: recommended for public libraries.AKarl Helicher, Upper Merion Twp. Lib., King of Prussia, PA
