Bill Clinton - Mastering The Presidency (Nigel Hamilton)

Bill Clinton - Mastering The Presidency
Nigel Hamilton

Blurb: Following on from the widely praised Bill Clinton: An American Journey, Nigel Hamilton takes us on another journey: charting the experience of the 42nd President as he took the 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. The Clinton administration began ominously badly - kicking off with the worst transition in living memory. The presidency then deteriorated through a series of fiascos at every level. The story of how Bill Clinton faced up to his failures, and refashioned himself in the White House in thus an epic one. It is a story that climaxes with a thriving U.S. economy and hard-won wisdom in international affairs. Clinton would begin his second term as the undisputed, immensely popular leader of the Western world - aware, however, that terrors and treason within America loomed as large as dangers abroad.

Insightful, balanced, prodigiously researched and a joy to read, Bill Clinton: Mastering The Presidency sets the classic story of Clinton's extraordinary effort to be a modern president, in a modern world.
