In "Real Peace", Nixon explains the peace process, how to deal with other nations without either insulting or offending them, thus ending hopes for peace, how to work toward common ground without making too many concessions and losing respect or weakening your own position, how to deal with aggressive nations without going to war by means of "hard headed detente", and other complexities.

Nixon thought that this was his most influential book, but he was wrong on one point-he thought that the challenge of the Cold War would not be solved in a decade, but thanks in large part to the actions of his successor Ronald Reagan, who agreed with and implemented many of the principles in this book, the Soviet Union was.

Nixon 1913-1994 Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th President of the United States, was the only President in more than two centuries of American history to resign from office. He was driven from office by the Watergate scandal, resigning in the face of certain impeachment on August 9, 1974. He often acknowledged that the event would inevitably stain his pages in history. Yet Mr. Nixon, one of the half dozen pivotal figures of American politics in the quarter century that followed World War II, wrought foreign policy accomplishments of historic proportions.

But with Real Peace, I read my first book by Richard Nixon. It’s an eye-opener, more fully cementing in my mind the drive Nixon had for world politics. Most importantly for our day and age, it’s a book in which Nixon deplores quick, political solutions to international problems that only I’ve read a lot of books about Richard Nixon. Nixon suffered a stroke on April 18, 1994 and died four days later at the age of 81.

Great Book. Nixon was a fine writer and observer of the international scene and i did not support him at all during those years,

Reading Nixon books has become an addiction and an obsession with me. Our president's wisdom and understanding of world affairs never ceases to amaze me. I pick up a book written by President Nixon and I cannot put it down. Who needs the internet or television? Students of political science or history are not getting an education, if you do not read this book. Obama should read it, and allow Nixon to take him by the hand and show him how to be a great president. Reading books by Hugo Chavez is what get us into the mess, that we are in, Mr. Obama.
President Nixon's knowledge is very deep. He has the experience of world leadership. The President talked to the leaders of Russia, China, the Middle East, of Asia, and Latin America. He knows their problems, their views, their interests, and their habits. As a teacher, if you do not read a Nixon book, then do not expect a passing grade from me.

"Real Peace" by Richard Nixon, is, in a sense, outdated. Written in 1983, much of what our 37th president wrote is no longer true. In December, 1991, after an abortive August coup attempt, the Soviet Union dissolved. Nixon spends much time and many words explaining why our relationship with the Soviet Union is important and why they are our biggest problem. With them no longer in the picture, some of what he said is moot point.

However, this does not affect the value or importance of the book. Whether the U.S.S.R. exists or not, the principles remain the same. The only thing that changes is the focus of our attempts to find world peace. It would be wonderful if this great man were available to update his work in light of the events of 1991 and, of course, 2001. However, his death in April, 1994 precludes that.

I have never been particularly disturbed by the events that got him in trouble and led to his resignation. Many of our presidents have done the same, and/or worse, but just didn't get caught, or did so before the news media became so powerful in shaping public opinion. Perhaps he wasn't a great president, or perhaps time will change historians overall evaluation of him. Either way, Richard Milhous Nixon was a man of unusual understanding of world political matters, and he deserves credit for this wisdom.

In "Real Peace", Nixon explains the peace process, how to deal with other nations without either insulting or offending them, thus ending hopes for peace, how to work toward common ground without making too many concessions and losing respect or weakening your own position, how to deal with aggressive nations without going to war by means of "hard headed detente", and other complexities.

He also has an interesting assessment of the talents and success/non-success of presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Carter and Reagan in matters of peace and national defense. As a result, I find myself very much in agreement with another Amazon reviewer in recommending this book to President Obama. I would add Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to that reading list. However, I would go one step farther: Richard Nixon should be raised from the dead, forgiven, and given full charge of American Foreign policy. I realize, obviously, that cannot be done. However, I am that impressed with the wisdom in his words. I no longer feel quite so foolish for voting for him...both times. Meanwhile, someone please send our present leaders personal copies of this book.

Five stars for wisdom and importance.

A medium size book in which former President Nixon explains his view in foreign affairs . I found this work very enlightning for what concerns the real way in which relationships among states work - among states or better say between states as the relationship is about, for the major part, USA and URSS-. Nixon's views are expressed in a clear and brief way so that the reader ends up with having learnt something about international relationships after reading this book.
