Douglas Brinkley and Luke Nichter - The Nixon Tapes: 1971-1972

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

This historic publication presents the transcription of nearly 4,000 hours of recorded conversations from Nixon’s presidency. Taped between 1971 and 1973, these frank discussions on topics ranging from détente with China to the SALT talks with the Soviets, from Nixon’s re-election campaign to the Watergate fallout, have been mostly unavailable to the public. Brinkley, Rice professor and author of bestselling histories including The Wilderness Warrior, worked closely with Luc Nichter, a Texas A&M history professor who has digitized thousands of hours of Nixon’s tapes and is active in the ongoing court battles to release more sealed Watergate documents.
