NIXON, Richard. Seize the Moment. New York: Simon & Schuster, (1992). Octavo, original full blue morocco gilt, watered silk endpapers, original morocco slipcase. $900.
Signed limited deluxe first edition of President Nixon's critically praised analysis of foreign policy, number 231 of only 250 copies signed by him.
In Seize the Moment President Nixon makes "short work of 'three myths' about the future of American foreign policy: the myths of the end of history, of the irrelevance of military power and of the decline of the United States. Rejecting both isolationism and a 'global democratic crusade,' Nixon comes down squarely on the side of what he calls 'practical idealism'… Building on his own formidable experience, Nixon analyzes, in successive chapters, the Soviet Union ('the former evil empire'), Europe, the Pacific, the Middle East and the third world. It takes a former President—and not just any former President—to write a book as broad and as deep as this one" (New York Times). Precedes the same year's trade edition.
A fine copy.
