‘Chasing Shadows’ details Richard Nixon’s pre-presidential dirty trick

Taut and laden with touches of humor, “Chasing Shadows” mainly seeks to highlight the importance of the 1968 Chennault Affair to Richard Nixon’s later undoing. Ken Hughes argues that Nixon put a monkey wrench in President Johnson’s peace talk initiative and then when in office began talking of burglaries to secure information on the talks that could help him deal with political enemies, real or imagined.
