Luke Nichter and Douglas Brinkley are the editors of The Nixon Tapes: 1973 (Houghton, Mifflin, Harcourt 2015). Nichter is associate professor of history at Texas A&M University and Brinkley is professor of history at Rice University.

For students of the Nixon presidency, this book offers a treasure trove of gems. Nichter and Brinkley have followed up on their earlier volume with new transcripts of the taped Oval Office recordings from 1973. Nixon talks with Henry Kissinger, H.R. Halderman, and John Dean. He talks on New Year’s Day with Charles Colson about bombings in Vietnam and with Al Haig about a White House welcome-home celebration attended by Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne.
