In response to the 2020 ISTD numbers brief, my publication explored the Watergate scandal and the significance of the number of hours of recorded conversations and calls over two years. My book
depicts the rise and fall of Richard Nixon and the relationship between the number of tape
recordings and Nixon's resignation. The existence and impact of the hours of tape recordings
are pivotal to my narrative.

My target audience are those already interested in American politics who want a more visual
approach to reading. I have tapped into the audience mindset and integrated an array of
imagery as well as utilizing pull quotes to denote key segments of information, making the
publication more engaging and easier to read.
My aim is to show people the impact that the tapes had on America during the 1970s and the
scandal this caused.
