This critical analysis of director Oliver Stone's Nixon argues that the screenplay and film are early attempts in American cinema to put the life of Richard Nixon in proper historical perspective. Although known for his provocative and controversial approach in his films toward people and events of the 1960s and 70s in America, Stone has delivered an evenhanded account of the impact of Nixon on American history. Previous portrayals of Nixon in television and movie dramas had largely depicted Nixon as either the incarnation of evil or as an oddly comic character worthy of satirizing. Stone's film is one of the first to present Nixon properly as the brilliant, complicated and ultimately flawed geopolitical thinker that he was. This book is appropriate for anyone interested in the Cold War. American film, or popular art and politics and adds to the study of the media's depiction of history and historical figures.
