Richard Millhous Nixon (1913-1994), the 37th President of the United States, will forever be remembered for Watergate. This book was written almost ten years after his resignation from the office of the President, during a time when he was working to rehabilitate his image.

During his time as President, he actually did much to bring peace to various parts of the globe; in 1972 he visited China which would result in the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two countries, initiated the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with Russia, and he ended the involvement of the U.S. in the Vietnam War in 1973 (ending the draft at the same time).

This the true first (private) printing of this work, with Nixon's signature in black ink on the front free endpaper, and a slip of paper loosely laid in with letterhead from the "Office of Richard Nixon", stating "This is a copy of the author's limited private edition of 'Real Peace'."
