Very happy with my purchase!
Finally, a book with an analysis of Watergate as a historical event. The problem with previous books about Watergate is that they were all written from the perspective of the author and his/her view of reality. Kutler writes as a historian. Attempting to set the stage for the event and detailing the issues with careful analysis. It is an amazing work really. Sunday historians or "picture-book" readers will lose patience with the work due to the painstaking detail of the book. Kutler starts with a careful analysis of Nixon's political past then moves on to the reasons (or lack thereof) for the arrogrant presumption that whatever the President does is OK (except perhaps for getting a BJ in the White House). Since the President is basically in charge of National Security issues, he cannot break the law in protecting those interests. Until reading Kutler's brilliant book, I was confused as to where this concept originated and how Nixon and his staff could be so stupid to justify... Read more
I just finished Wars of Watergate and enjoyed it very much. Kutler's expansive work makes this traumatic time in American history come alive. What stands out clearly for me after having consumed this book is the fact that Nixon became so obsessed with Watergate that he lost his ability to govern. His focus on enemies and public reaction to everything he did prevented him from being a president. Interestingly, nobody was killed or attacked in this scandal, and it probably would have all blown over had he just come clean as soon as he became aware of what happened. But Kutler makes wise observations regarding the power of the presidency, Congressional responsibility and many other constitutional factors that Watergate forced our country to confront. I wish my college textbooks resembled Kutler's work, as they'd have been much more engaging.
