A key figure in Watergate, Nixon’s Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman served 18 months in prison for his involvement. Now for the first time, he’s revealing all about the scandal that shocked America in this explosive memoir.
The greatest political scandal in American history, Watergate brought an administration to its knees - and plunged a nation into crisis. But was it Richard Nixon who ordered the five burglars to break into DNC headquarters? And what were they looking for?
What is the real story behind the infamous informer, Deep Throat? Did the CIA help bring down Nixon? What was on the missing 18.5 minutes of tape – and who really erased it? Here, at last, are the startling answers to all the conflicting accounts – from the ultimate insider.
The Ends of Power provides an unflinching insight into the Nixon Administration, covering the grievous mistakes, the intelligence and security involvement, the consequent diplomatic crises… and those infamous 18½ minutes.
