The Last Liberal Republican tells the thoroughly unknown —and thoroughly Nixonian— story of how President Nixon surprised Democrats and shocked conservatives with an ambitious domestic policy agenda, including guaranteed family income, a national health insurance program and support for children’s nutrition.
Domestic policy adviser John Roy Price worked with Daniel Patrick Moynihan and John Ehrlichman to develop these policies that, he contends, place Richard Nixon firmly in the liberal Republican tradition of Theodore Roosevelt, New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey, and Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The Last Liberal Republican is a valuable resource for any student of the presidency interested in Richard Nixon, his farsighted policies, the evolution of the Republican Party, and how the Nixon years preceded and contributed to the rise of the modern conservative movement.
