One Man Against The World Welcome To One Man Against The World

A shocking and riveting look at one of the most dramatic and disastrous presidencies in US history, from Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Tim Weiner
Based largely on documents declassified only in the last few years, "One Man Against the World "paints a devastating portrait of a tortured yet brilliant man who led the country largely according to a deep-seated insecurity and distrust of not only his cabinet and congress, but the American population at large. In riveting, tick-tock prose, Weiner illuminates how the Vietnam War and the Watergate controversy that brought about Nixon's demise were inextricably linked. From the hail of garbage and curses that awaited Nixon upon his arrival at the White House, when he became the president of a nation as deeply divided as it had been since the end of the Civil War, to the unprecedented action Nixon took against American citizens, who he considered as traitorous as the army of North Vietnam, to the infamous break-in and the tapes that bear remarkable record of the most intimate and damning conversations between the president and his confidantes, Weiner narrates the history of Nixon's anguished presidency in fascinating and fresh detail.

A crucial new look at the greatest political suicide in history, "One Man Against the World" leaves us not only with new insight into this tumultuous period, but also into the motivations and demons of an American president who saw enemies everywhere, and, thinking the world was against him, undermined the foundations of the country he had hoped to lead.

    They taught him right and what to believe
    How to live by the rules
    They all restrained his hungry heart,
    With time he would conceive
    Walked the path of a righteous man
    Taught him how to belong
    A winding road, and now it seems
    No, the world is on my shoulders
    I'm the one against the world
    The one they led astray
    But I'll know till my dying day
    I'm the only one against the world
    Never stray from our way of life
    Vent your anger within
    Betrayal, it makes a bitter man
    The truth cuts like knifes
    Now look at him and what he's become
    He still kneels for them all
    A broken pawn, about to fall
    No, the world is on my shoulders
    I'm the one against the world
    The one they led astray
    But I'll know till my dying day
    I'm the only one against the world
    There he stands alone again
    Watch his world become unreal
    Forever astray
    No, the world is on my shoulders
    I'm the one against the world
    The one they led astray
    But I'll know till my dying day
    I'm the only one against the world
    Against the world
    The world

    One Man Against the World is a work of new insight into Richard Nixon—a man who saw enemies everywhere and, standing alone, took up arms against them.
