Kurland, Michael, and S.W. Barton. The Last President
Divergence: 1972 CE
What if: The Watergate break-ins went undetected.
Summary: Nixon & Co.'s further activities (more break-ins, internal confinement camps, canceled elections, etc.) eventually provoke a coup.
Comments: Note that the president is never named and all other important administration figures have names other than those who actually served. Thus, this book may be considered borderline allohistory.
