At a time when the study of history and the people who made it is more vital than ever to help Americans put current problems in context, the production of massive, multi-volume biographies is unlikely to engage much of a readership outside the narrow spectrum of professional scholars. Ultimately, therefore, a highly desirable quality in future Nixon biography should be reasonable brevity. It must surely be possible to tell the story of his life and times in a single volume of fewer than five hundred pages without sacrificing essential analytic quality.
The book was battling the reality that his misdeeds were too well known to be downplayed. In its first two sections, Nixon portrays himself as an idealist intent on doing what is best for his country, but it is evident that he has lost all sense of the difference between right and wrong in the final section. Possibly the most astute assessment comes from an otherwise admiring biographer, Conrad Black: “Where Nixon’s record was strong, the book was strong. Where his record was vulnerable, it was evasive and sometimes dubious, especially in his lawlessness, cynicism, and endless threats of illegal vengeance on enemies” (Black 2007: 1018).
