December 15, 2014, Stephen Hess

In "The Nixon Sightings," Steve Hess recalls five key moments in his time working with Richard M. Nixon.

This series was written as background to Hess' new book The Professor and The President: Daniel Patrick Moynihan in the Nixon White House (Brookings Press, December 2014), a “dramatic narrative” of events in 1969-1970, told in the present tense.
