Why was President Nixon willing to risk his reelection with so many repeated burglaries at the Watergate-and other Washington offices-in just a few weeks? What motivated Nixon to jeopardize his presidency by ordering the wide range of criminal operations that resulted in Watergate? What was Nixon so desperate to get at the Watergate, and how does it explain the deeper context surrounding his crimes? For the first time, the groundbreaking investigative research in Watergate: The Hidden History provides documented answers to all of those questions. It adds crucial missing pieces to the Watergate story-information that President Nixon wanted, but couldn't get, and that wasn't available to the Senate Watergate Committee or to Woodward and Bernstein. This new information not only reveals remarkable insights into Nixon's motivation for Watergate, but also answers the two most important remaining questions: What were the Watergate burglars after? And why was Nixon willing to risk his Presidency to get it? Watergate: The Hidden History reexamines the historical record, including new material only available in recent years. This includes thousands of recently declassified CIA and FBI files, newly released Nixon tapes, and exclusive interviews with those involved in the events surrounding Watergate-ranging from former Nixon officials to key aides for John and Robert Kennedy. This book also builds on decades of investigations by noted journalists and historians, as well as long-overlooked investigative articles from publications like Time magazine, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Times., [United States]:Counterpoint ,2012., [United States]:Counterpoint ,2013., computerc, eBook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9781619020825_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9781619022676_180.jpeg, n-us---, online resourcecr, text file, texttxt
