Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
YA-Anecdotes, analyses, and remembrances from over 175 interviews with friends, staff members, legislators, reporters, and political opponents conducted between April and November, 1992 fill this primarily supportive biography. Many will agree with those who say that Clinton sincerely cares about people, Arkansas, and the country at large, while others see him as ``slick Willie,'' looking toward the next election. Readers are offered a glimpse of the campaign trail, including the intrusion of public coverage of his personal life. A brief examination of Clinton's accomplishments as governor, especially in education; his track record in appointing blacks and women to high positions; and plans for economic development provide a context through which YAs can evaluate his performance. A reader-friendly introduction to our president.-Barbara Hawkins, Oakton High School, Fairfax, VA
