The meeting—to talk about the potential for participating with Haldeman on a publication approximately his White condominium experience—becomes the automobile for Mee’s probing of his personal political perceptions.

Here, uncovered to the scrutiny of an unsparing journalistic eye, are the deep emotions of loss and failure that the Nixon debacle engendered in these american citizens who got here of age in the course of Kennedy’s “Camelot” and marched to the anti-Vietnam anthems of the Johnson era.

Mee writes with relocating authenticity of his Midwest-Catholic boyhood and family members roots attaining again to the Plymouth payment; he vividly recounts the actual and mental discomfort of a near-fatal conflict with polio at age fourteen and his highbrow awakening in the course of convalescence

But the main pivotal memories are of his scholar years at Harvard and his studies aas an editor/writer/activist within the Nineteen Sixties. there's wonderment and bewilderment in Mee’s telling of this time. in addition to others of his iteration, he asks: “What occurred? Who have been the true betrayers of the dream?”
