Overview

Tracing one of the greatest political comebacks in history, HRC chronicles the resurrection of Hillary Clinton, from the political ashes of her primary defeat to the most important diplomatic position in the world, and perhaps, to another run for the presidency.

HRC

Combining the deep reporting of a Bob Woodward Beltway tick tock and the astonishing storytelling of Game Change, HRC will take readers inside Hillary's decision to join the Obama Cabinet, her four years in his inner circle as Secretary of State (including new details on the Obama-Hillary relationship), and the mysterious workings of Bill and Hillary's political machine as she makes her decision about the 2016 election.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
New York Times Bestseller

USA Today Bestseller

"Books on contemporary political figures rarely have pinpoint timing, but this one does... [Allen and Parnes's] most persausive accomplishment is to show, backed by impressive detail, the ways in which Clinton never really abandoned domestic politics." –Jodi Kantor, New York Times Book Review

"[HRC] provides useful context and intelligent analysis, and a highly readable account of her tenure at Foggy Bottom... pumped full of colorful you-are-there details." –Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

"Deeply reported... a revealing window into the le Carré-like layers of intrigue that develop when a celebrity politician who is married to another celebrity politician loses to yet another celebrity politician, and goes on to serve the politician who defeated her." Washington Post

"HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton manages the rare feat of being both important and entertaining. It opens with a juicy chapter detailing the punishment and reward of Bill and Hillary’s political enemies and friends. But the meat of HRC is its narration of her role in tackling crises in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and Libya — an amazingly tumultuous period that provides the best preview of what a Hillary Clinton presidency might look like, at least for foreign policy." New York magazine

"A character-driven psychodrama, chockablock with sweaty descriptions of its players… It's no easy feat to wring page-turning narrative juice from four years of state craft, but Allen and Parnes have relied on 200 sources…to get them the gossipy goods."—Los Angeles Times
 
"A thoroughly reported and well-written chronicle of Clinton’s comeback and her tenure at the State Department." Christian Science Monitor

"Full of the inside baseball that political junkies love and on which opposition researchers thrive. Great stuff to light the hot stove of the off-season." Hugh Hewitt, The Washington Examiner

From the Hardcover edition.

Library Journal
09/15/2013

    HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton is a fabulous book. It really gives you a firsthand look at Hillary and her life in politics. The book is very well researched and the author provides great insight into Hillary’s political rebirth, making her the frontrunner for the 2016 presidency of the United States. Overall I really enjoyed this book.

    If you are a Republican you will hate this book because it is about a strong, brilliant leader in the Democratic Party. If you are a Democrat or open minded, you’ll really enjoy the incredible insight of this book.

    All about securing money for her campaign!

    Full of loopholes! Did not tell full story of any happening. Hillary is a hard worker but too naive!
