6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The decisions a political leader makes can determine the fate of a nation, but what determines how and why that person arrives at certain choices? William H. Chafe, a distinguished historian of twentieth century America, examines some of the most significant political leaders of the modern era in order to explore the relationship between their personal patterns of behavior and their political decision-making process. The result is a look at how personal lives and political fortunes have intersected to shape America over the past fifty years."--BOOK JACKET
Bill and Hillary : the politics of the personal by William H Chafe ( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In previous works the author has written powerfully about the relationship between personality and politics. This book represents the culmination of this approach to political history. Having written widely on civil rights and women's history, the author brings the themes of all his scholarship together in this book about the Clintons' "co-presidency," two people committed to both sex and race equality. From the beginning, he argues, the personal chemistry between the Clintons shaped definitively their political careers. She was instrumental in his triumphs as Arkansas governor and "saved" his presidential candidacy by standing with him during the Gennifer Flowers sex scandal. He responded by delegating presidential powers to her that no other First Lady had ever exercised. Often tempestuous, their relationship had as many lows as it did highs, but the trajectory of the Clintons' political lives can only be understood through the prism of their personal relationship. Full of insights about health care, Kenneth Starr, and welfare reform, this work gives texture and depth to the Clintons' lives, including the extent to which the Lewinsky scandal finally freed Hillary to become a politician in her own right and return to the consensus reformer she had been in college and law school
