Lastly, de Toledano’s own conservatism did not prevent him from admiring what he described as Nixon’s “divorcement from any doctrinaire espousal” (de Toledano 1956: 183). The politician who emerges from his pages is prepared to appropriate what best suits the nation’s needs from the agendas of both liberalism and conservatism without identifying himself with either value system. In relation to this, de Toledano anticipates later analysts in asserting that both sides of the political divide tried to remake Nixon’s identity into their own image of him (de Toledano 1956: 182; 1969: 9–10, 374).

Jonathan Aitken’s study is the closest we have to an authorized biography of Nixon, who granted him sixty hours of interviews and extensive (but not complete) access to his papers. In many respects, the themes of the biography update those of the pre-Watergate genre. Devoting nearly twothirds of his book to the pre-presidential Nixon, Aitken emphasizes his rise from modest origins, his fortitude in the Hiss case, and his resiliency in dealing with crises and setbacks in his career. The presidential section attempts to strike a balance between recognition of Nixon’s Watergate wrongdoings (narrowly defined in terms of obstruction of justice rather than abuse of power) and his achievements as peacemaker and international statesman.

A friend of Nixon’s, Mazo got him to open up in interviews more than any other writer probably would ever do. In part, this was because his subject trusted him to write the story he wanted. The staples of the Nixon life are all there: the rise from humble origins through hard work and talent; the tenacity against the odds in the Hiss case; and the willingness to do what is right for the nation regardless of ideological inconsistency. The author gave his subject the chance to review the manuscript and propose any changes, but it was so friendly that none of substance was required.
