Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Carl Bernstein offers a complex and nuanced biography of one of the most controversial figures of our time: Hillary Rodham Clinton. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with colleagues and friends and with unique access to campaign records, he has given us a book that enables us, at last, to address the question Americans are insistently--even obsessively--asking: What is her character? What is her political philosophy? Who is she? What can we expect from her?
