"A valuable primer on a first lady who is both a cultural icon and a political force. Troy's portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton shows how her elasticity as a public figure saved her husband's presidency and ultimately led her to pursue power in her own right". - Eleanor Clift, contributing editor, Newsweek"Vom Verlag:
For most first ladies, their years in the White House are their sole claim to fame. For one-Hillary Rodham Clinton - that tenure was just another step in a remarkable political career. Neither a "hit job" nor a facile tribute, Gil Troy's lively and refreshingly nonsensational new book provides a revealing look at arguably the most polarizing first lady in history and undoubtedly the most prominent American woman of our time.Troy, named by History News Network as one of America's Top 15 Young Historians, measures Clinton's historical footprint, tracing her activities during the turbulent decade that brought her to national prominence and examining her influence as a key player in her husband's administration.As the first feminist first lady, Hillary Clinton faced dilemmas typical of modern American women as she tried to be both a family-oriented, devoted wife and a career-focused, independent woman.Offering a mix of praise and censure that elevates to a more sophisticated level debates about her controversial career and presidential aspirations, Troy's book will enlighten and intrigue Hillary's passionate critics and staunch defenders alike.
