Book sheds light on Nixon's 'Kissinger Presidency'; Nixon: Newspapers 'a bunch of sluts'

Mike Sheehan

Monday April 2, 2007

An American historian discusses in a new book how in 1973 then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger "took control" of the White House from a president who was his rival as often as his ally.

In next month's Vanity Fair, Robert Dallek illustrates how President Richard Nixon "was losing his epic power struggle with Henry Kissinger," a thesis drawn out in his upcoming book Nixon and Kissinger: Partners in Power. He describes the two similarly as "paranoid and insecure, deceitful and manipulative, ruthless and strangely vulnerable."
