Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Morris, author of National Book Award nominee Richard Milhous Nixon: The Rise of an American Politician (LJ 12/89), has written arguably the most damning indictment of the Clintons to date. In addition to being the author of several well-received books, Morris was a highly respected public servant, working for Dean Acheson, Lyndon Johnson, Walter Mondale, and Richard Nixon and resigning from the National Security Council over the Cambodian invasion during the Nixon administration. Bill and Hillary Clinton are viewed as emblematic of a rotten political system that has sold out the interests of its citizens for the financial support of corrupt monied interests. Arkansas was a fertile training ground in no small part because of its few wealthy corporations, including Tyson Foods, Stephens, Inc., and Wal-Mart. The image of Bill Clinton as a moderate, public-oriented leader rings hollow to Morris. Hundreds of understandably confidential interviews present a sordid tale of a governor who allegedly sold his political soul to the Arkansas power structure. The Clintons, according to Morris, handsomely profited from Whitewater at the expense of the people the governor swore to protect. The harrowing tales of cocaine-sniffing toga parties pale in comparison with Clinton's alleged ties to organized crime, the Iran-Contra debacle, and drug smuggling from Mena, Arkansas. No one should come away from this book happy; complicity in the government's breakdown includes and transcends both parties. Clinton supporters will be despondent. An instant best seller that will stir considerable discussion and should be purchased by all public libraries.Karl Helicher, Upper Merion Township Lib., King of Prussia, Pa.
