Roundtable: "Nixon Declassified"
Wed, September 24, 2014 • 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM • GAR 4.100
In 2013, remaining segments of Richard Nixon's infamous tapes were declassified by the National Archives after years of litigation. The material has been comprehensively analyzed for the first time in Douglas Brinkley and Luke A. Nichter's newly released book, The Nixon Tapes 1971-1972 (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2014) On the fortieth anniversary of the president's resignation, this commemorative historical roundtable sheds new light on the Nixon administration's foreign and domestic policymaking.
