|Plot Summary of All the President's Men|
|"First published in 1974. Two journalists of the Washington Post, Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, are interested in the burglary which has just occurred in the Watergate building which houses the Democratic National Committee headquarters. Their meticulous investigation will show the implication of men close to President Richard Nixon in the organization of this burglary. The White House will first reject all the suspicions of the Washington Post but will finally be forced to recognize that certain people in the organization of the Republican party had organized the breaking of the Watergate building. Bob Woodward will be helped in his investigations by Deep Throat, an anonymous source who will often give him new leads when the journalist is uncertain about the accuracy of his articles."
Daniel Staebler, Resident Scholar
