Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 25th-anniversary edition of Bernstein and Woodward's classic of investigative journalism.

In what must be the most devastating political detective story of the century, two young Washington Post reporters whose brilliant investigative journalism smashed the Watergate scandal wide open tell the whole behind-the-scenes drama the way it really happened.

The story begins with a burglary at Democratic National Committee headquarters on June 17, 1972. Bob Woodward, who was then working on the Washington Post's District of Columbia staff, was called into the office on a Saturday morning to cover the story. Carl Bernstein, a Virginia political reporter on the Post, was also assigned. The two men soon learned that this was not a simple burglary.

Following lead after lead, Woodward and Bernstein picked up a trail of money, secrecy and high-level pressure that led to the Oval Office and implicated the men closest to Richard Nixon and then the President himself. Over the months, Woodward met secretly with Deep Throat, now perhaps America's most famous still-anonymous source.

Here is the amazing story. From the first suspicions through the tortuous days of reporting and finally getting people to talk, the journalists were able to put the pieces of the puzzle together and produce the stories that won the Post a Pulitzer Prize. All the President's Men is the inside story of how Bernstein and Woodward broke the story that brought about the President's downfall. This is the reporting that changed the American presidency.

Synopsis:

A collection of bestselling and award-winning books from our first seventy-five years. These titles are handsomely redesigned to combine original artwork with contemporary packaging. Many editions feature new introductions by the authors.

About the Author

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's Watergate coverage won the Washington Post a Pulitzer Prize in 1973. In 1974 they published All the President's Men, the story of how they exposed the scandal. This number one bestseller was followed by another, The Final Days, in 1976.

Carl Bernstein went on to write Loyalties: A Son's Memoir (1989) and to coauthor His Holiness: John Paul II and the Hidden History of Our Time with Marco Politi (1996). His articles have appeared in the New Republic, Rolling Stone, the New York Times, Newsweek, and Time, among other publications. He is also a consultant to CBS News. Since 1996 he has been a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Bernstein lives in New York City.
