More About This Title Silent Coup
This is the true story of betrayal at the nation's highest level. Unfolding with the suspenseful pace of a le Carre spy thriller, it reveals the personal motives and secret political goals that combined to cause the Watergate break-in and destroy Richard Nixon. Investigator Len Colodny and journalist Robert Gettlin relentlessly pursued the people who brought down the president. Their revelations shocked the world and forever changed our understanding of politics, of journalism, and of Washington behind closed doors. Dismantling decades of lies, Silent Coup tells the truth.
In 1992, journalist Len Colodny co-wrote with Robert Gettlin Silent Coup: The Removal of a President. He is also the co-author of The Forty Years War, The Rise and Fall of the Neocons from Nixon to Obama.
"Silent Coup sends us on an informative journey back to our national nightmare - the Watergate Era. Startling allegations . . . with documentation." —President Gerald R. Ford, former US President"I tout the book all the time, and my standard answer to anybody who ever raises the Watergate question with me is read Silent Coup." —H.R. Bob Haldeman, former Nixon Chief of Staff"Gettlin and Colodny's conclusions bring us as close to what actually happened as we are likely to get for some time. The whole story is almost certainly more unsettling than we imagined . . . . takes the foundation of Hougan's SECRET AGENDA and builds on it." —Prof. Herbert S. Parmet, National Review, Nixon Biographer"Ought to force a major rethinking of all we knew, or thought we knew, about the Watergate scandal . . . They have illuminated Watergate's darkest corners . . . In fact, Colodny's and Getllin's documentation puts Woodward's and Bernstein's to shame . . . future researchers cannot afford to ignore Colodny's and Gettlin's strong evidence." —Jack Kolbe, Arizona Gazette
