New Nixon Tapes Deciphered

Out this month: The Nixon Tapes: 1971-1972 by Douglas Brinkley and Luke Nichter.

Vanity Fair: "Over the last several years, the tapes--many of which were muffled and, at times, indecipherable--have been cleaned up, pored over, and painstakingly transcribed. The result--excerpted below--includes conversations with Nixon's national-security adviser Henry Kissinger, Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman, and chief domestic aide John Ehrlichman is a verbatim narrative of a pivotal period in Nixon's presidency that portrays him as a geopolitical strategist, a crisis manager, and a duplicitous paranoid."
