Description

This bold account provides an original perspective on one of the most significant legal struggles in American history: the Nixon administration's efforts to prohibit "The New York Times" and "The Washington Post" from publishing the 7,000-page, top-secret Pentagon Papers, which traced U.S. involvement in Vietnam. In his gripping account of this highly charged case, Rudenstine examines new evidence, raises difficult questions, and challenges conventional views of a historic moment.
