The Clintons: Their Story in Photographs (Hardcover)
The newest addition to the acclaimed "Story in Photographs" series illuminates the history of perhaps the most dynamic political couple on the planet: Bill and Hillary Clinton. "The Clintons" takes a fascinating look, through words and more than 220 images, at Bill's and Hillary's early lives, their personal and professional relationship, and their tumultuous but ultimately successful marriage. It examines Bill's difficult childhood and Hillary's evolution from Republican to Democrat; the couple's life in Arkansas when Bill was the nation's youngest governor and Hillary a corporate lawyer; the White House years when Bill balanced the budget and Hillary redefined the role of First Lady, and they weathered an impeachment scandal; and, finally, Hillary's run for president and her achievements as Secretary of State. This lavish volume features an artful combination of iconic images, rare photographs, insightful captions, notable speeches, and poignant quotes, as well as a foreword by "Hardball "host and John F. Kennedy biographer Chris Matthews.
