Elizabeth Drew was interviewed on stage by Timothy Naftali about her book, Richard M. Nixon, published by Times Books as part of the American Presidents series. She talked about writing the book and discovering new information in the tapes and in material published since President Nixon’s death. She contended that President Nixon was a man of contradictions, that he was indifferent to domestic policy while expanding the role of government during his tenure and active in thawing relations with China and the Soviet Union, but adverse to ending the war in Vietnam. She also focused on Richard Nixon’s personal traits that were marked by fits of paranoia, and she talked in detail about Watergate. After the interview she responded to audience members' questions. close
