Twenty-five years after Richard Nixon's resignation, investigative journalist Bob Woodward examines the legacy of Watergate. Based on hundreds of interviews - both on and off the record - and three years of research of government archives, Woodward's latest book explains in detail how the premier scandal of US history has indelibly altered the shape of American politics and culture - and has limited the power to act of the presidency itself. Bob Woodward's mix of historical perspective and journalistic sleuthing provides a unique perspective on the repercussions of Watergate and proves that it was far more than a passing, embarrassing crisis in American politics: it heralded the beginning of a new period of troubled presidencies. From Ford through to Clinton, presidents have battled public scepticism, a challenging Congress, adversarial press and even special prosecutors in their term in office. Now, a quarter of a century after the scandal emerged, the man who helped expose Watergate shows us the stunning impact of its heritage.

Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein exemplify on era when investigative reporters were seen as courageous fighters of corruption and injustice. Their epoch-making expose of the Watergate conspiracy not only contributed to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon but also set the standard to which successive generations of investigative reporters have aspired. In Watergate's Legacy and the Press, John Marshall recounts this captivating story and details the complex ways in which the press and American government have reshaped themselves in its wake. Marshall's thorough understanding of the history of these institutions gives rise to insights regarding present and future challenges. Although many mainstream reporting. Marshall finds hope in the opportunities offered by blogs, crowdsourcing, and nonprofit institutions. The result of painstaking research and scholarship, Watergate's Legacy and the Press is ultimately a tribute to the irrepressible investigative impulse in American journalism and the crucial public service provided by investigative reporters.

This definitive history of presidential lying reveals how our standards for truthfulness have eroded -- and why Trump's lies are especially dangerous. If there's one thing we know about Donald Trump, it's that he lies. But he's by no means the first president to do so. In Lying in State, Eric Alterman asks how we ended up with such a pathologically dishonest commander in chief, showing that, from early on, the United States has persistently expanded its power and hegemony on the basis of presidential lies. He also reveals the cumulative effect of this deception-each lie a president tells makes it more acceptable for subsequent presidents to lie-and the media's complicity in spreading misinformation. Donald Trump, then, represents not an aberration but the culmination of an age-old trend. Full of vivid historical examples and trenchant analysis, Lying in State is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how we arrived in this age of alternative facts.
