Three years after Richard Nixon's resignation after the Watergate scandal in 1971 he agreed to a series of interviews with the English interviewer David Frost. " Conducted over twelve days, they resulted in twenty-eight hours of taped material, which were aired on prime-time television and watched by more than 50 million people worldwide. Nixon, a skilled lawyer by training, was paid $1 million for the interviews, confident that this exposure would launch him back into public life. Instead, they sealed his fate as a political pariah." -- from the rear panel blurb. The author was the adviser to David Frost, and in this book he gives an account of how, through dogged research, he gave David Frost the information he needed to force "... Nixon to admit his culpability." -- from the rear panel blurb. This book is what the film " Frost/Nixon" is based upon. This is the first Australian edition. Size: Standard Paperback.
