In recent years historians have paid substantial attention to the origins of modern political conservatism and the record of the Nixon administration in building a Republican majority in the late twentieth century. In Richard Nixon and the Quest for a New Majority, Robert Mason analyzes Nixon's response to the developing conservative climate and challenges revisionist claims about the activist nature of the Nixon administration. Nixon was an activist in intent, Mason contends, but not in deed. Nixon's "silent majority" speech of 1969 not only undermined the growth of the antiwar movement, Mason shows, but also identified a constituency for Nixon to cultivate in order to secure reelection. However, the implementation of his new-majority project was hindered by the resort to dirty tricks against political opponents and the ineffectual pursuit of a policy agenda. Although some Nixon initiatives were enacted, says Mason, they were not substantial enough to rival the Democrats' bread-and-butter issues. While Nixon built Republican strength at the presidential level, Mason argues that he did not succeed in mobilizing popular support for broad-based political conservatism.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: USA, Note: 2,9, Universität Hamburg (Institut für Politische Wissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Übung: Amt und Wahl des US Präsidenten, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „The greatest honor history can bestow is he title of peacemaker” – Die größte Ehre, die die Geschichte verleihen kann ist der Titel des Friedensstifters. Eine Aussage, mit der Richard Nixon als 37. Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten am 20. Januar 1969 sein Amt antrat. Ein Präsident, der von der Nachwelt vor allem negativ und in Zusammenhang mit der Watergate-Affäre, die die bisher tief greifendste Vertrauenskrise der Amerikaner in ihr politisches System auslöste, wahrgenommen wurde. Diese Arbeit soll jedoch eine im Zuge des innenpolitischen Fehlverhaltens Richard Nixons oftmals vergessene Seite seiner Präsidentschaft beleuchten: seine Außenpolitik. Wie im Einleitungssatz angedeutet, war Nixon angetreten, die starre Verkrustung des Kalten Krieges zwischen Ost und West aufzubrechen und durch eine Annäherung der gegnerischen Lager den Weltfrieden zu sichern. Unter was für Umständen dies geschah, welche Hauptakteure am außenpolitischen Prozess beteiligt waren, welche Impulse die Nixon Administration in den internationalen Beziehungen einbrachte und inwiefern sie ihrem Anspruch den Frieden zu sichern gerecht wurde, soll Thema dieser Arbeit sein. Die Auswirkungen des Watergate-Skandals auf die Außenpolitik werden ebenso behandelt. Auf eine Darlegung der multikausalen Ursachen der einzelnen internationalen Konflikte habe ich bewusst verzichtet, da es den Rahmen dieser Arbeit sprengen würde.

Februar 1972 besuchte der damalige US-amerikanische Prasident Richard M. Nixon die Volksrepublik China. Es war der erste Besuch eines amtierenden Prasidenten in dem kommunistischen Riesenreich und bedeutete de facto die Anerkennung Rotchinas. Dies stellte die wichtigste aussenpolitische Wende der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika seit dem Beginn des Kalten Krieges dar, die Nixons Kritiker und politische Freunde, Amerikas Gegner und Verbundete gleichermassen irritierte. Denn seit dem Jahre 1949, als die chinesischen Kommunisten mit ihrem Fuhrer Mao Zedong an der Spitze, die von den USA unterstutzten Nationalchinesen Chiang Kai-sheks besiegt hatten und daraufhin die Volksrepublik ausgerufen hatten, lehnten alle folgenden US-Regierungen eine Anerkennung Rotchinas strikt ab. Stattdessen unterhielt man diplomatische Beziehungen zu der Inselprovinz Taiwan, auf die sich die Nationalchinesen zuruckgezogen hatten, und pochte stets auf dem Alleinvertretungsanspruch Taiwans fur das gesamte chinesische Volk. Vor dem Hintergrund dieser Tatsachen war Richard Nixons Aufenthalt in Peking in den Augen seiner Zeitgenossen wahrlich A week that changed the world," wie er selbst konstatierte. (Vgl. Nixon 1978: 476) Doch warum vollzog der Prasident nun uberhaupt diesen Schritt zur Offnung Chinas? Warum erkannten Nixon und"

“Informative, explicit, even suspense-ridden.…An important source for students of the Nixon presidency.” —The New York Times Former President Richard Nixon's bestselling autobiography is an intensely personal examination of his life, public career, and White House years. With startling candor, Nixon reveals his beliefs, doubts, and behind-the-scenes decisions, shedding new light on his landmark diplomatic and domestic initiatives, political campaigns, and historic decision to resign from the presidency.

“Beyond Peace is Mr. Nixon’s best book.” —The New York Times Beyond Peace is a manifesto for a new America, written with visionary insight and a realistic idealism by the 37th President of the United States—and only completed weeks before his death. In this last testament, Nixon offers a new agenda for the United States and defines its role in the complex post-Cold War era. Nixon charts the course America should take in the future to ensure that the opportunities of this new era beyond peace are not lost. America’s issues, he argues, extend from a crisis of spirit which manifests itself in a corrosive entitlement mentality that he describes as “one of the greatest threats to our fiscal health, our moral fiber, and our ability to renew our nation.” With his unrivaled experience in foreign affairs gained over many years as a statesman in the international arena, he gives answers to complex foreign issues facing the United States. And his intimate portraits and analyses of world leaders—past and present—offer us a unique, bird’s-eye view of leadership and international politics. This book challenges us to seek more than just peace; it must be a mission that will unify and inspire the country, built on peace but able to transcend it.

When Nikita Khrushchev shouted contempt for the United States in his famous “Kitchen Debate” with Vice President Richard Nixon, Americans gasped at the sudden glimpse of the Soviet leader's character. At the time cameras and reporters were present. But how much more would we have learned if we could have traveled the globe with Richard Nixon and met privately with others who have shaped the modern world? Richard Nixon knew virtually every major foreign leader since World War II—some at the pinnacle of power, some during their “years in the wilderness” out of power, and still others toward the end of their lives. His was an unparalleled opportunity to gain insight into the nature of the powerful and qualities of leadership. In Leaders, Nixon shares these insights and experiences. He illustrates these leaders in private, assesses their careers, recalls words of wisdom, and brings to bear his own judgments. We meet the co-architects of the New Japan, Douglas MacArthur and Shigeru Yoshida. Encountering the legendary leaders of China—Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, and Chiang Kai-shek—we see the men behind the events. We see the intensely private Charles DeGaulle; explore the philosophies of Konraud Adenauer; confront Leonid Brezhnev; and delight in the company of Winston Churchill—not to mention Nixon’s analyses of interactions with dozens of other leaders. No one but Richard Nixon could have written this book. It is at once as personal as a handclasp and as objective as only so earnest a student of history could have made it.

This is the first truly comprehensive history of the political explosion that shook America in the 1970s, and whose aftereffects are still being felt in public life today. Drawing on contemporary documents, personal interviews, memoirs, and a vast quantity of new material, Stanley Kutler shows how President Nixon’s obstruction of justice from the White House capped a pattern of abuse that marked his entire tenure in office. He makes clear how the drama of Watergate is rooted not only in the tumultuous events and social tensions of the 1960s but also in the personality and history of Richard Nixon. Kutler examines Nixon’s confrontations with the institutions he feared and resented—the Congress, the federal agencies, the news media, the Washington establishment—and how they mobilized to topple the President. He considers the arguments of Nixon’s defenders, who insisted that Watergate was a minor affair, and the contention that the President did nothing worse than his predecessors had done. He offers compelling portraits of the President’s men—H. R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, John Mitchell, Charles Colson, John Dean; of his adversaries—Judge John Sirica, the U.S. Attorneys, Special Prosecutors Archibald Cox and Leon Jaworski; and of the legislators who would stand in judgment—Sam Ervin and Peter Rodino. In the course of his engrossing narrative, Stanley Kutler illuminates the constitutional crisis brought on by Watergate. He shows how Watergate diminished the moral level of American political life, and illustrates its continuing detrimental impact on the credibility, authority, and prestige of the Presidency in particular and the government in general. His book underlines for the American electorate the significance of Watergate for the future of our political ethics and the maintenance of our constitutional system, as well as for the place of Richard Nixon in American history.

Richard M. Nixon remains an enigma even thirty years after his resignation. Of the many portraits of this complex man, none have been more intimate or revealing than this memoir from his personal physician, friend, and confidante of more than forty years, John C. Lungren, M.D. Dr. Lungren, with his son and co-author John C. Lungren Jr., portrays Nixon as a paradoxical man -- intense, compassionate, guarded, intelligent, resilient, deeply religious, enormously successful but ultimately tragic. Lungren describes his battle to restore the president's health after his resignation and reveals previously unknown details about Nixon's two intensive hospitalizations, his near fatal vascular collapse, and his depression. Lungren experienced firsthand Nixon's thoughts and feelings during the public scrutiny of federal prosecution for his role in the Watergate break-in. Accused of shielding his friend, Lungren himself came under fire; his private office was even burgled in an apparent attempt to copy Nixon's private medical records. Using previously unpublished sources, original correspondence, and private photographs, Healing Richard Nixon places Nixon in a new light. No future research or conclusions about Nixon -- the man or the president -- will be complete without consulting this fascinating memoir.

In this landmark 1980 bestseller, Richard Nixon presents an effective analysis of strategic shortcomings and a prescription for renewed strength. Nixon’s tough-minded views discussed in this book became a blueprint for Ronald Reagan’s military buildup and strategic initiatives—which ultimately paved the way for the end of the Cold War. Highly relevant to contemporary times, Nixon argues persuasively that America must assume a role of global leadership to make sure the war of annihilation never happens. The economic, material, and technological capacities to prevail are not enough, he cautions, without the resolve of national will. He utilizes the lessons of history—from the Mongolian invasion of Russia to the revolution in Iran—to instruct the future. From his unique perspective as the former chief executive of the nation, he tells us how we can use our political, economic, and military strengths to turn the tide.
