In This Review

By Richard M. Nixon
Warner Books, 1982, 371 pp

These sketches of major figures - Churchill, de Gaulle, Khrushchev, Chou En-lai and others - reveal Mr. Nixon's admiration for ruthless dedication. The principal interest of the book lies in the author's account of his own exchanges with the subjects and in his sometimes angry digressions-for example, against liberal bureaucrats who thwart conservative Presidents.
