  • Frank Shakespeare, the man behind the whole campaign, who, after eighteen years at CBS, cast the image that sold America a President
  • And the candidate, Richard Nixon himselfa politician running on television for the highest office in the land

In his introduction, Joe McGinniss discusses whyunfortunatelyhis classic book is as pertinent today to understanding our political culture as it was the year it was published.
