Bill Clinton by Nigel Hamilton
Book DescriptionNigel Hamilton's account of Bill Clinton's early life and career - "Bill Clinton: An American Journey" - drew widespread praise. Now, in "Bill Clinton: Mastering the Presidency", Nigel Hamilton charts the experience of the 42nd President as he took presidential oath of office - and how he fared thereafter in the piranha pool of Washington D.C. Hamilton charts what was possibly the greatest disaster and re-reinvention of a president in office in modern times. How Bill Clinton faced up to his failures, and refashioned himself in the White House is an epic story. With a thriving U.S. economy and hard-won wisdom in international affairs and in combating the rise of terrorism, Clinton would begin his second term as the undisputed, immensely popular leader of the Western world - aware, however, that terrors ant treason within America loomed as large as dangers abroad.Insightful, balanced, prodigiously researched and a joy to read, "Bill Clinton: Mastering the Presidency" is set to become, alongside its prequel, the classic story of Clinton's extraordinary effort to be a modern president, in a modern world - and a chronicle one of the most extraordinary reversals of fortune in modern American politics.
