Summary
"This book, based on research on and transcripts of the Nixon, Johnson, and Kennedy White House presidential recordings as well as other contemporary sources, reveals for the first time the origins of the 'Plumbers' (the Special Investigations Unit) and Nixon's policy of illegal break-ins for partisan political gain, which led to Watergate, its cover-up, and Nixon's resignation. The e-book links to extended transcripts and audio files of the presidential recordings"--Provided by publisher
