Unknotting the Tangled Threads of Watergate Lore

Reviewing Leak: Why Mark Felt Became Deep Throat by Max Holland

“Holland does more than present what is certainly a more nuanced explanation for the leaks by the whistleblower “Deep Throat.” The research that goes into this relatively short book (200 pages of text, plus exhaustive footnotes) not only collects in one place the facts surrounding the investigation of Watergate, but also assesses many of the myths that have developed around that rather remarkable period of history.”
