Nixon from a Nixon insider

I don't always agree with Patrick Buchanan, but the man knows his history. His political books aren't simply filled with conjecture--as is the case with so many political writers. Buchanan makes a habit of backing up his views with historical evidence.

Buchanan also knows the Nixon White House from the inside. Buchanan worked in the top levels of Nixon's 1968 campaign, and was employed by the Nixon administration as a researcher and speechwriter. 

For these reasons, I am looking forward to reading Buchanan's new book, The Greatest Comeback: How Richard Nixon Rose from Defeat to Create the New Majority.
