Title: Breach of Faith by Theodore H. White

Category: Nonfiction, History, Politics, Presidents

Review: This book was written in 1975, so it is a very old book. It is a well-written book, however, if you read it, the author talks as if certain events happened recently. At the time it did, but since it has been over 40 years, it does not apply anymore. The author, Theodore White, was a reporter and wrote this book. This book is on the particulars of how Nixon and his cabinet handled the Watergate affair. It does not just dive into the Watergate affair. It leads up to it. The author takes us through the whole scandal and how it happened. We learn how and why Nixon and his cabinet did what they did. We come to understand why the government had to impeach him or were going to before he resigned and Nixon’s trust issues. It’s a very revealing book by a talented reporter of that time. I didn’t read it in one setting though. It took me a few days to read because of its size. However, if you like to read about the Watergate scandal or are interested in it, you might want to check it out at your local library. It would be hard to find it new since it was printed in 1975.
