Nixon's last book was completed just a few weeks before his death. He had written several books on foreign policy and geopolitics,
and as the title suggests, peace needs to be more than just the absence of war.

Foreign policy is still Nixon's forte, and he begins with an analysis of the situation as he sees it. There's an extended reflection on
Russia and a hopeful defense of Yeltsin despite criticisms from both the American right and left. Amusingly, he says "almost all
Russian politicians drink" as Nixon himself did in his later days. The later Yeltsin years weren't very successful economically or
otherwise, and Putin rose as a nationalistic strong leader who undermined a lot of the democratic reforms. Nixon then exhorts
America to continue to engage Europe, while opening up to Asia which will be essential in the 21st century. He defends his
opening up to China as having occurred at the right time, and encourages continued engagement with China despite its human
rights problems, because economic engagement will lead to political reform. All in all, he argues for continued American involvement
in the world and against isolationism of the left and the right-without mentioning names, this would include his former advisor
Pat Buchanan.

Nixon then discusses many domestic issues. He was known as the law and order candidate, and continues to argue
for a tough stance on crime. He is against big government and skeptical of the incoming Clinton administration,
including its plans on health care. However, some of his positions are surprising. He is for gun control and pro
choice on abortion, discussing that in the context of China's policy of all things. He was also very critical of the
religious right, without mentioning names but presumably Pat Robertson and Pat Buchanan, but defended
Dan Quayle for his advocacy of the traditional two parent family as the solid basis of society. He remains
critical of 60s radicalism and the social elites, including the cynicism of the media and advocates for
spirituality and religion in society, but not directly influencing the government.

In general, he defended the Reagan and Bush administrations, but noted that spending was not sufficiently
controlled so the deficit continued to grow. In terms of his own legacy, while he created the EPA he regretted
the direction of the more radical aspects of environmentalism.

Although Nixon was one of our most controversial Presidents, he was also one of the most intelligent of the
leaders since World War II and anyone can learn a lot from his reflections. His emotional shortcomings,
which Henry Kissinger himself has acknowledged, do not take away from his intellectual gifts.

President Nixon was paranoid, but he was also very inelligent. His insights have been lost to time due to his scandals, sadly, along with many of his lasting endeavors while in office. He might be the last of the old guard of Republicans before it was taken over by the Christian Right.

That being said this is his final book and he knew and was writing some last words on his hopes for the future, essentially what is our goals for the future? It's well written, insightful, detailed, but there's 2 problems with this:

1. The book is written during the Clinton era. The world has changed much. Thus the book becomes, like many political books, a historic look at the past. Some of it looks at the big picture, but some of it will fall on deaf ears as it deals with events no longer relevant. It is possible to write a book that looks at the big picture, but Nixon wanted to speak on current events and the media wasn't clamoring on his door in his final days, so he took to the page.

2. I was hoping for a book that discussed more of his life. While his perspective on world events is interesting and he had much to share, we turn to Nixon to hear about Nixon. We turn to WFB, Jr to hear about the world. Much of this is traditional (pre-Neo-Con) Republicanism and not Nixon-specific. I was hoping for more of Nixon the man talking about the man, which in this case might be more examples from his life. There were a few, but not enough to keep my interest. Even Ann Coulter puts more of her in her books and she doesn't have the life of interest that Nixon has. This just becomes a book of political views and if you remove the author's name it would be hard to figure out who wrote this.

Though Richard Nixon was a lifelong Republican, warts and all, he remains an intelligent, knowledgeable, important figure in the fields of international affairs and foreign policy. When he speaks about China, the world listens. When he speaks about Russia or the Soviet Union, the world listens. The world community, on the whole, is less attuned to correlating the man with the supposed image brought about by the Watergate scandal than most Americans. Consequently, they have lived out the Watergate fantasy most Americans would like to permanently attach to and besmirch Nixon's legacy. History has shown, as much as this book stands as a testament, that Richard Nixon was larger than Watergate and was responsible, either in part with Henry Kissinger and a cabinet of able-minded personalities or in whole, for a great many political and global accomplishments.
Nixon's main charge here is that the domestic affairs of America may do more to sink its dominance as the leader of the free world than it will to propel it into the leadership in the coming twenty-first century. America's true challenge as a global dominating force and as a people will not be during wartime but, rather, during a time of peace when we have no one to fight but ourselves. His charge remains poignantly clear in 2004: If we have no foreign enemy to fight, we look toward each other with that same malice.
Nixon's insightful analysis as a former president and perhaps the greatest foreign policy president of the 20th century make his work here absolutely qualified and essential to any reader with an interest in political science or governmental affairs.

This is not light reading, but is interesting if you are a politics wonk or are interested in what Nixon thought was next for the US after the end of the cold war. You may want to break it up a little, I had to force myself to slog thru the last chapter or so after reading too much at one sitting.
