Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

These files allow scholars and researchers the opportunity to assess, from a British, European and Commonwealth perspective, Nixon's handling of numerous Cold War crises, his administration's notable achievements, as well as his increasingly controversial activities and unorthodox use of executive powers culminating in Watergate and resignation.

FCO and British Embassy analyses of US policy decisions, White House staff appointments and UN discussions, views on Europe, the deployment of F111 aircraft on US airbases in the UK and Nixon's battles over funding from Congress, visits to the US by both Wilson and Heath, files on the internal situation in the US and domestic reform are core subjects of this digital collection. There are also detailed assessments of all the changes brought about by the Presidential Elections of 1972.

The Nixon Years, 1969-1974, is part of Archives Direct, a cross-searchable multi-product platform, sourced from The National Archives, UK.
