Summary More than a "Watergate" book, Perfectly Clear traces the road to the scandal through the career of Richard M. Nixon. Frank Mankiewicz takes the reader through the Nixon history, and what he describes as "Nixon politics," from its beginnings to Watergate and beyond. Thus he demonstrates how the use of forged cables, illegal contributions, burglary and wiretapping, corruption, and outright political sabotage is the inevitable result of twenty-seven years of increasing emphasis on "national security," the militarization of previously civilian activities, the growth of an imperial White House, the "CIA-ization" of much of our domestic affairs, and the simultaneous political career of Richard Nixon. - Jacket flap.
