"She's a radical feminist. She's just a wife. She's Emma Goldman in a pantsuit. She's a corporate sellout. She's a liberal. She's conservative. She'll move all women forward. Yeah, right: The only woman she cares about is herself."from Katha Pollitt's introduction Who is Hillary Clinton really? Her identity as a feminist, as a wife, as a woman, as a liberal and as a potential President of the United States has been debated and contested for more than 20 years. Chief amongst these debates, The Nation has, over the years, examined her from every angle from First Lady in 1993, to New York Senator in 2000 to Democratic Presidential hopeful today. 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 of our most enigmatic public figures. It is a history of our time, and a must-read for the 2016 election season, providing perspective on the woman who could become the first female President of the United States. 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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The writers of Who Is Hillary Clinton : Two Decades of answers: suggest that she is committed to her interest and family. The contributors to the I.B. Taurus & Co. Ltd/The Nation Company LLC book were of different periods in her career and life with Bill Clinton and sometimes did not see what her interests were and are. But the work taken as a whole provides a complete picture of who this woman, who was the first chosen candidate of a major us political party, is. I found the work dull and at times repetitive.
