Richard Milhous Nixon: The Rise Of An American Politician
Richard Milhous Nixon: The Rise Of An American Politician
By Roger Morris
Henry Holt, 1989, 1005 pp

Roger Morris has written a first-rate biography of Richard Nixon up to the election of 1952 when he became vice president. The book is especially strong on the politics of California during Nixon's apprenticeship, and in analyzing Nixon as the product of time and place.
