SYNOPSIS: For the first thirty-seven years of his life, Jeb Stuart Magruder lived the American dream. A charming, intelligent, intensely ambitious young man, he worked his way through college, married the right girl, fathered four handsome children, and all the while worked his way up the corporate and political ladders at a dizzying pace, until in 1969 he was called to Washington to serve as a Special Assistant to President Nixon. He loved the power and excitement of the White House, and it seemed that a life of limitless success awaited him. Then, in 1972, the dream turned into a nightmare. In that election year, while serving as deputy director of the Committee to Re-Elect the President, he became involved in the plot to burglarize the offices of the Democratic Party. And when the Watergate burglars were arrested in the early morning of June 17, 1972, Jeb Magruder immediately became a central figure in the effort to conceal the truth about Watergate. At first, the cover-up succeeded. But, in early 1973, even as Jeb Magruder directed President Nixon's dazzling Second Inaugural, the house of cards was about to collapse. Watergate burglar James McCord sent word to Judge John Sirica that perjury had been committed during the Watergate trial. Jeb Magruder was one of those who had committed perjury, and he knew that the truth would soon come out. After agonizing days of indecision, Magruder realized that he had no choice but to go to the Watergate prosecutors, tell the truth, and accept the consequences. In An American Life, Jeb Magruder narrates the gripping, sometimes tragic story of his rise and fall. It is as much a personal story as a political one. Magruder tells of his beautiful, idealistic wife, Gail, who shared the days of glory with him, and then was a source of strength to him in his time of despair. He describes how he and Gail have fought to keep their family intact amid the storms of the Watergate controversy. He provides, too, what may prove to be one of the most vivid insider's pictures of the Nixon Administration that will ever be written, a panoramic portrait that includes the brooding, reclusive President, the autocratic Haldeman, the unflappable Mitchell, the scheming Colson, the evasive Dean, and the erratic Liddy--G. Gordon Liddy, the "intelligence expert" whom Magruder almost fired one day, after Liddy had threatened to kill him, but who stayed on to become the spark that ignited Watergate. Jeb Magruder looks back with candor and tries to understand the maddening Why?--why he and so many other intelligent men could have been so stupid as to allow Watergate to happen. He looks ahead, too, for Jeb Magruder still believes in the American Dream, and intends to build a new and better life for himself and his family. Jeb Magruder's downfall is unique, and yet, in another sense, his is a very American story, a story of ambition and opportunity and temptation, of the worship of power and success, and of the pride that comes before the most terrible falls..
