"Each moment in history is a fleeting time, precious and unique. But some stand out as moments of beginning, in which courses are set that shape decades or centuries—this can be such a moment."
The Inaugural Address, January 20, 1969
In the first year of the Nixon Administration there have been many such moments of beginning. Moments that set new policies, new programs to solve the problems of a troubled nation.
All of these are mirrored in Setting the Course—a collection of the major speeches and messages that marked President Nixon's first twelve months in office. Speeches that define the philosophy and plans of the Administration, messages that reveal what direction the government—and the nation—will take in the years ahead.
The words are important historically. But they are much . more than that: they disclose a broad and incisive view of the forces that motivate this Administration, and the goals that give it direction.
