Summary
  • "When Gerald R. Ford entered the White House in August 1974, he inherited a presidency tarnished by the Watergate scandal, the economy was in a recession, the Vietnam War was drawing to a close, and he had taken office without having been elected. Most observers gave him little chance of success, especially after he pardoned Richard Nixon just a month into his presidency, an action that outraged many Americans, but which Ford thought was necessary to move the nation forward." "During his presidency, many people thought of Ford as a man who stumbled a lot - clumsy on his feet and in politics - but historian Douglas Brinkley shows him to have been a man of independent thought and conscience, who never allowed party loyalty to prevail over his sense of right and wrong."
  • "Brinkley draws on exclusive interviews with Ford and on previously unpublished documents (including a remarkable correspondence between Ford and Nixon stretching over four decades), fashioning a masterly reassessment of Gerald R. Ford's presidency and his underappreciated legacy to the nation."--BOOK JACKET
