Agnew: The Unexamined Man

Agnew: The Unexamined Man (Paperback)

Unavailable. Withdrawn from sale by publisher.


This is a serious and surprising look at Spiro Agnew, the former Vice President of the United States, written before his bribery and tax evasion scandals were brought to light. What follows is the cover text found on the original edition, published in 1971: If Agnew infuriates you, you will be surprised to learn that he is intelligent, loyal, principled and sincere. If Agnew delights you, you will be surprised to learn that he is inconsistent, manipulative and susceptible. He is a political man. Contending that to himself Agnew has remained the unexamined man, the author traces his progress from Republican convert in 1956 to Republican Vice President in 1969. Robert Marsh worked for and beside Agnew for several years and had his initial cooperation while writing this book. He had a unique opportunity to interview and tape many of Agnew's advisors, friends and enemies. What emerges is a Polaroid portrait. Driven neither by malice nor by genius, Agnew is revealed as he is. This is an American success story with implications that go far beyond the contemporary political scene.
