Time and Chance: Gerald Fords Appointment with History by James Cannon

Gerald Ford came to the presidency at the time of one of our nations greatest constitutional crises, the downfall of President Richard M. Nixon in the aftermath of the Watergate affair. His service as president concluded a distinguished career in the House of Representatives during which he served as leader of the Republican Party in the House. With unrestricted access to Gerald Fords papers, James M. Cannon tells the story of Fords rise and Nixons ruin, providing new insights into this troubling period of our history and Fords role in guiding the nation through it. Cannon tells the story of Fords difficult early life and the beginnings of his career in politics in the period immediately after World War II. He tells the story of Fords rise to prominence in the House of Representatives during the 1950s and 1960s, giving us a fascinating picture of the Congress. In addition, in telling us about the personal life of Gerald Ford, he gives us a sense of the price Ford paid for his success. James Cannon, formerly national affairs editor at Newsweek and Fords domestic policy advisor, has written a superbly provocative and arresting biography that traces Fords life from his July 4, 1913, birth in Omaha, Nebraska, to his September 8,1974, decision to pardon Nixon of the Watergate conspiracy. --Washington Post Book World James M. Cannon is a journalist and was Domestic Policy Adviser to President Ford and Chief of Staff to Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker.
