Prize-winning historian John A. Farrell presents a brilliantly researched, authoritatively crafted biography of our darkest presidency, the full life of Nixon readers have awaited. Richard Nixon follows the president from his youth as an idealistic Navy lieutenant to the White House, his roles in the McCarthy era and the Cold War, and to his ultimate resignation in disgrace. "Few came so far, so fast, and so alone," Farrell writes. This enthralling biography is a defining portrait of Nixon's legacy as an architect of a more polarized and divided America.
