Some of the documents herein are presented in their entirety. Others are excerpts, with the missing portions indicated by ellipses. Many of these excerpted documents, however, can be easily found online in full via Google, including the Frank Gannon interviews (chapter 4), the Checkers speech (chapter 7), the first Kennedy-Nixon debate (chapter 10), the “Last Press Conference” (chapter 11), and the 1968 acceptance speech (chapter 16). Also, every official presidential utterance (chapters 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30) is accessible at http://www .presidency.ucsb.edu. A selection of important transcripts of President Nixon's conversations regarding Watergate and related matters can be foundin Stanley Kutler, Abuse of Power: The New Nixon Tapes (New York: Free Press, 1997). They can be listened to in full at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, and all the recordings are slowly being digitized by the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia and made available at http://millercenter.org/index.php/ academic/presidentialrecordings/pages/tapes_rmn.
I would be glad to entertain questions at Nixonland@live.com.
