"Dark Intrigues and hotline dialogs within the thick walls of The New York Times building- a wonderfully readable book." -Guy Talese

"Brilliant and diligent journalism, ingeniously well-crafted, vigorous." --The Washington Post

This is a book by a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist about how the New York Times took down President Nixon...from the back:

"Pulitzer Prize-winner Harrison E. Salisbury reveals the people and policies that led to that landmark decision [to publish the Pentagon Papers] Beginning with the Time's coverage of the Cuban missile Crisis thought the civil rights movement, Vietnam, and Watergate, he explores the turbulent years that saw a great newspaper break its cozy postwar relationship with the government and become one of its chief adversaries.

Juicy, detailed, controversial and positively engrossing, Without Fear or Favor is a provocative inside look at the New York Times and a fascinating history of these times.
