John A. FarrellPrize-winning biographer, John Farrell, discusses his new book Richard Nixon: The Life. In a January 1, 2017 op-ed in The New York Times, Farrell previewed one of the book's sensational findings: that Nixon personally directed a secret campaign to scuttle Lyndon Johnson's October, 1968 peace initiative.  His fellow historians told the Times how the book provides a key and missing piece to the history of the Vietnam war.  Farrell's lecture is exceptionally relevant in the age of Trump.

Farrell is a contributing editor to Politico Magazine and a contributor to The Atlantic, after a prize-winning career as a journalist, most notably at The Denver Post, National Journal and The Boston Globe, where he worked as White House correspondent and served on the vaunted Spotlight team.
