At the moment when the long-concealed identity of the Watergate scandal's most famous source, Deep Throat, has finally been revealed as former FBI deputy director Mark Felt, it is only appropriate that the historic Senate Select Committee report that helped trigger the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974 should be made available to a new generation. Here it all is: the break-in and cover-up, the wire taps, the dirty campaign tricks, the attempts to improperly influence government agencies, and the ensuing trail of lies and deceptions all laid out in painstaking detail.
