Even if you know your history… even if you’ve seen “All the President’s Men” 800 times… you don’t really know about Watergate, and the motivations behind it. The story is much darker and long-running than you ever thought possible – and Lamar Waldron‘s new book “Watergate: The Hidden History: Nixon, The Mafia, and The CIA” gives a whole new layer of insight into not just Watergate, but the long and very strange history of Richard Nixon, the Mafia and the CIA.
Weighing in at a whopping 808 pages, this book is chock full of brilliant research and insights, which Lamar has been toiling on since 1990.
We thoroughly enjoyed this conversation – and we were so fascinated, we had him back – ’cause we couldn’t fit it all into one hour.
