About this title

Synopsis:

"This insiders' view of the Nixon presidency through the lens of Fred J. Maroon and the pen of Tom Wicker sheds light on Nixon and this extraordinary and unsettling time."--BOOK JACKET. "Fred Maroon had no way of knowing when he began work on a book project to photograph the new presidency that he would find himself in a unique position to document the events, as they unraveled, of the Watergate crisis. At that time no other outside photographer had been given the kind of access Maroon had to the White House or, later, to the Committee to Re-elect the President. To complete the story of Watergate, Maroon covered the events that followed - the Senate Watergate hearings, the House impeachment hearings, and the final days of the Nixon presidency."--BOOK JACKET. "Most of the 145 duotone photographs in this remarkable portfolio have never been published before; they are the best of the thousands of pictures Maroon took during Nixon's term of office, from his jubilant inauguration in 1969 to his emotional resignation in 1974. The pictures are direct, powerful documents of a disturbing political era."--BOOK JACKET. "The accompanying text by eminent journalist Tom Wicker, who also had first-hand knowledge of the presidency as a columnist for the New York Times, is an objective, insightful narration of the Nixon years."--BOOK JACKET.

From Library Journal:

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
