It began with a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington DC, on 17 June 1972. Bob Woodward, a journalist for the Washington Post, was called into the office on a Saturday morning to cover the story. Carl Bernstein, a political reporter on the Post, was also assigned. They soon learned this was no ordinary burglary. Following lead after lead, Woodward and Bernstein picked up a trail of money, conspiracy and high-level pressure that ultimately led to the doors of the Oval Office. Men very close to the President were implicated, and then Richard Nixon himself. Over a period of months, Woodward met secretly with Deep Throat, for decades the most famous anonymous source in the history of journalism. As he and Bernstein pieced the jigsaw together, they produced a series of explosive stories that would not only win the Post a Pulitzer Prize, they would bring about the President's scandalous downfall. ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN documents this amazing story. Taut, gripping and fascinating, it is a classic of its kind -- the true story of the events that changed the American presidency.

After being sworn in as president, Richard Nixon told the assembled crowd that “government will listen. ... Those who have been left out, we will try to bring in.” But that same day, he obliterated those pledges of greater citizen control of government by signing National Security Decision Memorandum 2, a document that made sweeping changes to the national security power structure. Nixon’s signature erased the influence that the departments of State and Defense, as well as the CIA, had over Vietnam and the course of the Cold War. The new structure put Nixon at the center, surrounded by loyal aides and a new national security adviser, Henry Kissinger, who coordinated policy through the National Security Council under Nixon’s command. Using years of research and revelations from newly released documents, USA Today reporter Ray Locker upends much of the conventional wisdom about the Nixon administration and its impact and shows how the creation of this secret, unprecedented, extra-constitutional government undermined U.S. policy and values. In doing so, Nixon sowed the seeds of his own destruction by creating a climate of secrecy, paranoia, and reprisal that still affects Washington today.

In the late sixties, Establishment Hollywood was jarred awake by the smash box-office popularity of Bonnie & Clyde, 2001: A Space Odyssey, & Easy Rider--maverick films that spoke to a vast new audience of young moviegoers. The film industry reacted with an all-out effort to court sixties youth by making anti-establishment movies filled with strong social commentary. Provocative films such as The Graduate, Medium Cool, M*A*S*H, A Clockwork Orange, Woodstock, Alice's Restaurant, The Strawberry Statement, & Billy Jack strayed far from the mainstream, yet defined the shape & essence of American cinema for the next decade. BORN TO BE WILD is both a narrative & critical history of this era. It tells how Hollywood addressed such issues as violence, campus revolt, sexual liberation, Watergate & the Vietnam War & how audacious young filmmakers in chronicling an age told the story of a generation. (Originally published by Harper & Row in 1984 as HOLLYWOOD FILMS OF THE 70s. "Intelligent...sensitive...crammed with welcome information."--The New York Times).
