9781584154709: The Watergate Scandal (Monumental Milestones: Great Events of Modern Times)

Under the cover of darkness, a team of burglars broke into the Democratic National Committees headquarters at the Watergate Hotel. By a fluke, they were discovered by an observant security guard and arrested. At first glance it appeared nothing more than a random break-in. But when two Washington Post reporters began digging deeper into the background of the burglars, the trail led higher and higher and eventually straight to the White Houseand into the Oval Office.As the Watergate scandal unraveled, it turned into one of the United States greatest Constitutional crises, pitting the judicial system against a paranoid President who believed he was above the law. When secret tapes of conversations between President Richard Nixon and his top aides were discovered, it proved that the White House was running a shadow government, leaving Nixon no choice but to resign or face certain impeachment. The Watergate scandal is a story of the dangers of unchecked power and the importance of a free press to be the publics eyes and ears.

About the Author:

Kathleen Tracy has been a journalist for over twenty years. Her writing has been featured in magazines including The Toronto Star’s "Star Week," A Biography magazine, KidScreen and TV Times. She is also the author of numerous biographies and other nonfiction books, including Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, William Hewlett: Pioneer of the Computer Age, The Fall of the Berlin Wall, and Top Secret: The Manhattan Project for Mitchell Lane Publishers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9–Watergate traces the events that lead to Nixon's impeachment and resignation beginning with the start of the Vietnam War. Titanic chronicles the ship's fated voyage from design to destruction. While this topic is not new, Whiting offers a good introduction to the tragedy. He incorporates the new findings currently being argued, such as whether or not the sinking was due to the ship's design flaws or human misjudgment. Short chapters and the small trim size will appeal to readers who shy away from longer report books. However, the sophistication of the content (Watergate is particularly challenging as there are many players to keep straight) and the high reading level will put these titles outside of the range of less proficient readers. Overall, these are good supplemental purchases to round out collections.–H. H. Henderson, Heritage Middle School, Deltona, FL
