Rachel Stiffler Barron is also the author of Lise Meitner: Discoverer of Nuclear Fission.From School Library Journal:
Grade 8-10-A comprehensive portrait of the statesman's political career and personal life. Barron moves beyond a recounting of the man's public actions to examine his ambitions and motivations, showing readers how his mixed record of political successes and failures and his lifelong perception of himself as an unaccepted outsider gradually transformed him into a paranoid and vengeful individual. Barron is objective about her subject, giving him credit for his considerable successes and holding him responsible for his failures. She also includes considerable background information, which allows her to place Nixon's actions in the context of both the American political scene and the Cold War foreign-policy era. Numerous black-and-white photos illustrate both Nixon's life and some of the people and events discussed in the text. The bibliography lists only adult titles. This book traces Nixon's final years and surveys the continuing reassessments of that legacy that has followed his death, material that cannot be found in older titles such as Richard Pious's Richard Nixon (Messner, 1991) and Rebecca Larsen's Richard Nixon (Watts, 1991). It is more comprehensive, interesting, and useful than Michael Schuman's Richard M. Nixon (Enslow, 1998), and is a good choice for any library that needs current information on one of the dominant political figures of the second half of this century.
