The Rehnquist Choice

In 1971, William Rehnquist seemed the perfect choice to fill a seat on the United States Supreme Court. He was a young, well-polished lawyer who shared
many of President Richard Nixon’s philosophies and faced no major objections from the Senate. But in truth, the nomination was anything but straightforward.
Now, for the first time, former White House counsel John Dean tells the story of Rehnquist’s appointment. Dean offers readers a place in the White House
inner circle, providing an unprecedented look at a government process.
