Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"He has written an account that future historians of the Clinton presidency will not be able to ignore."--The New York Times

"In today's hype-addled world, the word 'brilliant' is tossed around too casually. But in this rare case, the adjective is right. Morris is brilliant-when he's not being stupid."—Newsweek

"Students of American politics will find Behind the Oval Office a revealing and absorbing text. There is no better recent account of the forces at work in the political process."—Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
