American politics changed forever in January 1973: the Watergate burglars went on trial, the administration negotiated an end to the Vietnam War, the Supreme Court issued its decision in Roe v. Wade, Lyndon Johnson died in Texas, and Richard Nixon began his second term. These events linked in unlikely ways to create a time of immense transformation. Using newly released Nixon tapes, James Robenalt provides readers a fly-on-the-Oval-Office-wall look at what happened in the White House, events both fascinating and terrifying, during this monumental month. He also delves into the judge's chambers and courtroom drama of the Watergate trial and the inner sanctum of the US Supreme Court as it hashed out its decision in Roe v. Wade. Though the events took place more than forty years ago, they're key to understanding today's political paralysis.
