Hillary Rodham Clinton: Activist 1st Lady

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-A meticulously researched profile of the First Lady that, while clearly exhibiting the author's admiration for his subject, nonetheless presents well-balanced information in a highly readable format. Mrs. Clinton's commitments to social and political activism, dating back to her high school days, are portrayed as a driving force throughout her life. Commentary about the social and political climate of the '60s and '70s, which also greatly influenced her personal and professional development, is woven into the factual narrative. The resulting portrait of Mrs. Clinton as a ``symbol of American womanhood'' shows a woman who has used her considerable intelligence and determination to forge an important place for herself in the service of her country. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs, the book includes a short chronology and an extensive notes/bibliography section. This is a better choice than JoAnn Bren Guernsey's Hillary Rodham Clinton (Lerner, 1993), which lacks much of the detail and documentation included here.-Mary Jo Drungil, Niles Public Library District, IL
