The Time of Illusion

Critics of the current Bush administration may be tempted to reach for John Dean's new book, Worse than Watergate. I suggest, instead, reaching back for Jonathan Schell's brilliant analysis of a presidential administration that governed on political instincts alone--and eventually melted down domestically--because of the perceived imperatives of the Cold War. Read The Time of Illusion, an analysis of the Nixon administration, Watergate, and Vietnam.
