Front Cover
Lowell House, 1998 - Political Science - 326 pages
Richard Nixon has occupied a central position in American political culture since the late 1940s. No other postwar president has been so extensively defined by his enemies. From his first political opponent to his waning days as an author and statesman, he played on the pervading fears of his era to build power and influence. Jerry Voorhis, Helen Gahagan Douglas, Hubert Humphrey, and George McGovern were all targets of Nixon's enmity, and Kurz examines the roles they played in creating one of the most influential figures in the second half of the 20th century.
