A generation after Watergate, Nixon remains the dominant American political figure. The Nixon Presidency, with its achievements and failures culminating with the Watergate scandal, will linger at the forefront of our political conscience. With hindsight, Richard Nixon appears to be a tragic figure of Shakespearean proportions, a man whose story is at once compelling and infuriating - and worthy of further examination. In this companion to the film, which includes the complete screenplay with full annotation, footnotes, documentation, a comprehensive bibliography, and an interview with Oliver Stone, Nixon emerges as a political leader governed by personal demons. In the tradition of the tragic hero, Nixon has left us a complicated legacy. This compilation, which includes essays by prominent figures associated with Nixon and Watergate, previously classified memos and documents from the Nixon White House, and transcripts of Nixon's taped conversations in the Oval Office, sheds new light on Nixon, the man behind the powerful figure, and the political machine that catapulted him to the top
