Summary
This book argues the thesis that during the Nixon and Ford administrations America discovered the limits of its power, and that both presidents had, therefore, to adjust to new realities in both their domestic and their international activities. It was also the period when the American people first insisted on certain limits to presidential activity, and even forced a powerful president from office for that reason. Like the distinguished preceding books in this series - by Charles Alexander on Eisenhower and Jim Heath on the Kennedy-Johnson years - John Greene's study provides a balanced historical assessment of the Nixon and Ford administrations. The volume focuses on both domestic and foreign policy and presents one of the first true historical judgments about these administrations
