Article Link: John Dean
The Daily Beast recently ran an interesting interview with John Dean, available here. I don't particularly agree with his characterization of the skills of lawyers versus historians (no problem with lawyers; just think he should give historians more credit). It's fascinating that one of the key figures in the Watergate affair has become perhaps the authoritative expert on Nixon's role in the cover-up. The interview includes a link to Bob Woodward's glowing review of Dean's The Nixon Defense.
