Woodward Reviews 'The Nixon Defense'

Bob Woodward: "To date, the dissemination of some 250 White House conversations has defined his presidency and its corruption. Now comes John W. Dean, Nixon's White House counsel and later his chief accuser, to transcribe and analyze at least 600 new conversations in his book The Nixon Defense. The title is misleading, because it suggests there is a case for Nixon's innocence. Dean quickly clears that up when he writes in the preface, 'Fortunately for everyone, his defense failed.'"

"I never doubted that Nixon was the ringleader and driving force behind the Watergate crimes and mind-set. The evidence on previous tapes, the testimony at hearings and trials, and the memoirs of his closest aides made that clear. But Dean's book seals that conclusion, perhaps forever."
