Complete journal description:
The Journal of History & Deep Politics is a 50th-anniversary retrospective of Watergate. In this issue, author Jim Hougan looks at Lou Russell and his involvement as “the sixth man;” James DiEugenio addresses the oddly silent death of James McCord and gives a belated, proper retrospective of his work with the CIA; Ray Locker looks back at the activities of Donald Segretti, focusing on their real impact on Watergate; Robert Gettlin describes obtaining the Welander Confession from John Ehrlichman; Geoff Shepard discusses the legal malfeasance of Cox, Sirica, and Jaworski; David Denton writes about the recent documents that describe E. Howard Hunt’s deteriorating relationship with the CIA; Phil Stanford describes the White House Call Girl Ring and what its relative impact on the second Watergate break-in was; Edgar F. Tatro takes an important, critical look at the totality of Leon Jaworski’s career; James Rosen eulogizes Len Colodny; and Mal Hyman addresses the CIA’s impact on the media in the post-Watergate era.
