The Ends of Power

by Haldeman, H. R. with Joseph DiMona

Condition: See description


New York: Times Books, 1978. WYSIWYG pricing--no added shipping charge for standard shipping within USA. Dark blue cloth with gilt facsimile signature on front board, red endpapers, xxi, 326 pp, 8 ff b&w photo plates. When we bought this book, it was new in shrink wrap, but the shrink wrap was abraded near top of fore-edge of front board and at bottom of front hinge. The jacket has chips in these two places, and cloth has two small but heavily abraded spots as well. Otherwise, the book and jacket are as new, with the DJ in a Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: "As Chief of Staff to the President, H. R. Haldeman was present at almost every meeting of any importance. He knew more about Nixon's real opinions and feelings than any other member of the Administration.... Because of his willingness to admit his own mistakes, it is easier to accept his candid assessment of errors made by President Nixon, Charles Colson, John Dean, and others. Haldeman also reveals some of the extraordinary accomplishments of the Nixon Presidency, secret until now, including two nuclear confrontations with the Soviet Union as perilous as the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962." Shipping weight 3 lbs. (International 2 lbs., 8 oz.). BOMC. . 24 X 16 cm.
