Bill Clinton by Michael Tomasky( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bill Clinton: a president of contradictions. He was a Rhodes Scholar and a Yale Law School graduate, but he was also a fatherless child from rural Arkansas. He was one of the most talented politicians of his age, but he inspired enmity of such intensity that his opponents would stop at nothing to destroy him. He was the first Democrat since Franklin Roosevelt to win two successive presidential elections, but he was also the first president since Andrew Johnson to be impeached. In this incisive biography of America's forty-second president, Michael Tomasky examines Clinton's eight years in office, a time often described as one of peace and prosperity, but in reality a time of social and political upheaval, as the culture wars grew ever more intense amid the rise of the Internet (and with it, online journalism and blogging); military actions in Somalia, Iraq, Bosnia, and Kosovo; standoffs at Waco and Ruby Ridge; domestic terrorism in Oklahoma City; and the rise of al-Qaeda. It was a time when Republicans took control of Congress and a land deal gone bad turned into a constitutional crisis, as lurid details of a sitting president's sexual activities became the focus of public debate. Tomasky's clear-eyed assessment of Clinton's presidency offers a new perspective on what happened, what it all meant, and what aspects continue to define American politics to this day. In many ways, we are still living in the Age of Clinton."--Jacket
Hillary's turn : inside her improbable, victorious Senate campaign by Michael Tomasky( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, political columnist Michael Tomasky exposes the fascinating inner workings of that race. Hillary, he reveals, was neither a gladiatorial tigress nor the unreconstructed flower child conservatives so deeply feared. Constitutionally unable to embrace what Tomasky calls "the politics of personal narrative" and to bare her soul before the voters, she instead presented herself in a tradition of nineteenth-century women reformers religiously bent on problem solving. But would that play in a media capital that savored scandal and demanded that politicians parade their personalities?"
If we can keep it : how the republic collapsed and how it might be saved by Michael Tomasky( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning his history in 1787, when the Constitution was written, Tomasky shows that America has almost always had two clashing political tribes that are existentially, and often violently, opposed. While the nation remained polarized throughout the nineteenth century, the Depression and World War II, were the two eras that forged a rare period of national unity in the twentieth century-- and the period right after that, when the country split apart over race, immigration, stagnant wages, and the horrendous inflation of the 1970s. Tomasky shows that, in the twenty-first century, our two political parties have grown not just further apart but have become different creatures entirely. He offers an agenda for how we can help fix our broken political system, and points us toward a more hopeful political future. -- adapted from jacket
Left for dead : the life, death, and possible resurrection of progressive politics in America by Michael Tomasky( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With each chapter a unique stepping stone in recent history, Tomasky traces the uneasy relationship between the left and the Democrats, the early institutionalization of identity politics in the McGovern campaign, the dead-end pursuit of welfare rights in the halls of academia, the confused and ultimately failed campaign for national health care and the ill-conceived politicking over immigration - all of which come to life with insight, freshness and candor in the pages of this book
