For many years before he became president, Richard Nixon's decisions vitally affected the well-being of the nation. Six of those decisions significantly shaped the man who would later become the thirty-seventh president of the United States. Six Crises is a close-up look at this dynamic man, recalling the demands placed up him, the thinking behind his decisions, and the pressures of political life. A best-seller when first published in 1962, it examines the turning points of Nixon's early public career - from the Hiss case the the Checkers speech to the kitchen debate with Krushchev and the presidential campaign against Kennedy in 1960. It provides a remarkable self-portrait of Nixon as congressman, senator, and vice-president, as well as a compelling window on history.
