Product Details


“John Judis is our finest reporter and analyst of Washington’s inner workings. His new book brilliantly relates the secret history of the Clinton era—its origins, its frustrations, and its disloyal opponents. It is a chilling tale that others have been either too trusting or too timid to tell straight.”
—Sean Wilentz, Dayton-Stockton Professor of History, Princeton University

“This is a compelling analysis of our irresponsible elite—and an astute history of times when ‘the public interest’ had real meaning. John Judis is one of America’s best political journalists, and his book is essential to understanding our current political mandates.”
—Michael Kazin, author of The Populist Persuasion: An American History

“With the insight that has made him one of our wisest political observers, John Judis makes a trenchant analysis of what has gone wrong with American democracy—and how it can be corrected.”
—Ronald Steel, author of In Love with Night: The American Romance with Robert Kennedy
