Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The book’s unbiased presentation is refreshing. Its focus on the human aspects of Watergate, equally so. Ultimately, Balis and Levy walk readers through the scandal with expertise. A compelling book that deserves to be on the shelf.” School Library Journal
“Riveting…This valuable book reminds us that we can learn from the lessons of history and so avoid reprising the dark days of this national nightmare.” Booklist (starred review)
