Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 31 Days, acclaimed historian Barry Werth takes readers inside the White House during the tumultuous days of August 1974, following Richard Nixon's resignation and the swearing-in of America's "accidental president," Gerald Ford. The Watergate scandal had torn the country apart. In a dramatic, day-by-day account of the new administrations inner workings, Werth shows how Ford, caught between political expedience, the countrys demands for justice, and his own moral compass, struggled valiantly to restore the nations tarnished faith in its leadership. With deft and refreshing analysis Werth illuminates how this unprecedented political upheaval produced new fissures and battle lines, as well as new opportunities for political advancement for ambitious young men such as Donald Rumsfeld, who had been Nixons ambassador to NATO, and Dick Cheney, already coolly efficient as Rumsfelds former deputy. A superbly crafted presidential history with all of the twists and turns of a thriller, 31 Days  sheds new light on the key players and political dilemmas that reverberate in todays headlines.

Synopsis:

The author takes readers inside the White House during the tumultuous days following Nixon's resignation and the swearing-in of Gerald Ford, revealing the ruthless maneuvering and day-to-day politicking behind everything from the pardon of Nixon to the rise of a new cadre of Republican movers and shakers.
