The secrets of Watergate were hidden by lies and deceit, and only one man had the right and the power to bring the White House to justice. In this book Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski for the first time explains and documents the details of the behind-the-scenes struggles for the White House tape recordings, the release of which culminated in a historic Supreme Court decision and the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

A thorough and easy to read account of his role as Special Prosecutor (after Archibald Cox) of the Watergate affair. He adds his thoughtful and balanced judgements to the historical account. An excellent primer of what occurred and how it was adjudicated. Read full review
