2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation from the White House, and no book has captured the extraordinary upheaval of America during the Watergate years better than Elizabeth Drew's Washington Journal. The book that established Drew's reputation as one of the shrewdest and sharpest writers on American politics, Washington Journal took in the emerging scandal with tremendous clarity and force. Unfolding over the course of a single year, from September 1973 to August 1974, Washington Journal is the record of the near-dissolution of a nation's political conscience - told from within. Cool and understated - and all the more devastating for its understatement - Washington Journal was immediately hailed upon its publication in 1975 as a landmark work of journalism. With a new afterword that brings this all too relevant book squarely into the present and reflects on what has changed - and what hasn't - in the last forty years, Washington Journal is available again, at long last, ready for its place in the pantheon of great political writing.
