Overview

Who is Hillary Clinton? is a fascinating time-lapse depiction of the leading Democratic presidential candidate as seen from the left. But it is also much more than that. A carefully-edited anthology of The Nation's coverage of Clinton's career, it's a rigorous and painstaking study of one our most enigmatic public figures. It is a history of our time, and a must-read for the 2016 election season.

Contributors include David Corn, Erica Jong, Christopher Hitchens, Michael Tomasky, William Greider, Ari Berman, Barbara Ehrenreich, Chris Hayes, Jessica Valenti, Richard Kim, Joan Walsh, Jamelle Bouie, Doug Henwood, Heather Digby Parton, Michelle Goldberg, and many more.

"Hillary Clinton is a Rorschach test of our attitudes--including our unconscious ones--about women, feminism, sex and marriage, to say nothing of the Democratic Party, progressive politics, the United States and capitalism," writes Nation columnist Katha Pollitt in the book's introduction. "This collection of Nation articles won't answer all the readers' questions, but at the very least in brings the Rorschach blot into clearer focus."
