The Woodward and Bernstein Waterate Papers

All the President's Men

Published in June 1974, two years after the Watergate break-in and two months before Nixon's resignation, All the President's Men chronicled Woodward and Bernstein's struggles, failures, and eventual success in uncovering the Watergate story. Drawing on the notes and research accumulated while writing their stories for The Washington Post, the book revealed for the first time the existence of Woodward's highly placed and highly secretive source "Deep Throat," promoting wide speculation on his identity. The book remained on best-seller lists for six months and was later turned into a hugely successful 1976 movie, forever linking Woodward and Bernstein's names with investigative journalism and Nixon's fall.
