View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The Arrogance of Power will destroy forever the image that Nixon sought to make his legacy. Summers documents previously undisclosed facts about Nixon's role in the attempted sabotage of the Vietnam peace talks; in the plots to topple Fidel Castro; about his unscrupulous acceptance of finds from dubious sources; his difficulties with alcohol and his reliance on unprescribed medication; his mental and emotional stability, with exclusive access to the doctor who sought to help him; the truth about his best friend, Bebe Rebozo; and his troubled marriage to his wife Pat.
