Simon & Shuster has just released the complete works of Richard M. Nixon as e-books, in honor of his 100th birthday today. Nixon was a prolific writer and several of his 10 works were best-sellers. Among the titles being released are RN: The Memoirs of Richard Nixon; No More Vietnams; In the Arena: A Memoir of Victory, Defeat and Renewal.
“Nixon’s books were best sellers because they offered important views and commentary on the major events which shaped our country and the world. It is clear that Richard Nixon is now being studied and appreciated more and more on the basis of his entire 48 years in the public square,” said the president of the Richard Nixon Foundation, Sandy Quinn via Mediabistro. Nixon, a Duke University law school graduate, was a lawyer with the Mudge Rose firm in New York in the years between serving and vice president and president.
Most of the books cost $13.99 and are available from the Simon & Shuster website or Amazon.com. Robert C. Odle Jr. of Weil, Gotshal & Manges negotiated the deal on behalf of The Richard Nixon Foundation.
The Atlantic has published an absorbing Nixon remembrance on its website, The Operatic Life of Richard Nixon, to mark his 100th birthday. The author, John Aloysius Farrell, is writing a book on the 37th president.
