Inside of this book is fine, sun fade on bottom half of front cover, scuff at top left, rubbed on silver gilt spine and speckled toning on edges. DJ has light wear along top edge, otherwise fine. Nixon continued to seek redemption by holding himself up as an elder statesman through his writings. Another flawed President, who at least knew how to write. "I was glad to leave the oppressive drabness of Moscow behind as our limousines sped down deserted roads toward Khrushcev's summer house. I though to myself that the color we associated with communism should not be red but gray." (p 187).
