New York Times Bestseller

USA Today Bestseller

"Books on contemporary political figures rarely have pinpoint timing, but this one does... [Allen and Parnes's] most persausive accomplishment is to show, backed by impressive detail, the ways in which Clinton never really abandoned domestic politics." –Jodi Kantor, New York Times Book Review

"[HRC] provides useful context and intelligent analysis, and a highly readable account of her tenure at Foggy Bottom... pumped full of colorful you-are-there details." –Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

"Deeply reported... a revealing window into the le Carré-like layers of intrigue that develop when a celebrity politician who is married to another celebrity politician loses to yet another celebrity politician, and goes on to serve the politician who defeated her." Washington Post

"HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton manages the rare feat of being both important and entertaining. It opens with a juicy chapter detailing the punishment and reward of Bill and Hillary’s political enemies and friends. But the meat of HRC is its narration of her role in tackling crises in Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, and Libya — an amazingly tumultuous period that provides the best preview of what a Hillary Clinton presidency might look like, at least for foreign policy." New York magazine

"A character-driven psychodrama, chockablock with sweaty descriptions of its players… It's no easy feat to wring page-turning narrative juice from four years of state craft, but Allen and Parnes have relied on 200 sources…to get them the gossipy goods."—Los Angeles Times
"A thoroughly reported and well-written chronicle of Clinton’s comeback and her tenure at the State Department."Christian Science Monitor

From the Hardcover edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The mesmerizing story of Hillary Clinton's political rebirth, based on eyewitness accounts from deep inside her inner circle

Hillary Clinton’s surprising defeat in the 2008 Democratic primary brought her to the nadir of her political career, vanquished by a much younger opponent whose message of change and cutting-edge tech team ran circles around her stodgy campaign. And yet, six years later, she has reemerged as an even more powerful and influential figure, a formidable stateswoman and the presumed front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, marking one of the great political comebacks in history. 
The story of Hillary’s phoenixlike rise is at the heart of HRC, a riveting political biography that journeys into the heart of “Hillaryland” to discover a brilliant strategist at work. Masterfully unfolded by Politico’s Jonathan Allen and The Hill’s Amie Parnes from more than two hundred top-access interviews with Hillary’s intimates, colleagues, supporters, and enemies, HRC portrays a seasoned operator who negotiates political and diplomatic worlds with equal savvy. Loathed by the Obama team in the wake of the primary, Hillary worked to become the president’s greatest ally, their fates intertwined in the work of reestablishing America on the world stage. HRC puts readers in the room with Hillary during the most intense and pivotal moments of this era, as she mulls the president-elect’s offer to join the administration, pulls the strings to build a coalition for his war against Libya, and scrambles to deal with the fallout from the terrible events in Benghazi—all while keeping one eye focused on 2016.
HRC offers a rare look inside the merciless Clinton political machine, as Bill Clinton handled the messy business of avenging Hillary’s primary loss while she tried to remain above the partisan fray. Exploring her friendships and alliances with Robert Gates, David Petraeus, Leon Panetta, Joe Biden, and the president himself, Allen and Parnes show how Hillary fundamentally transformed the State Department through the force of her celebrity and her unparalleled knowledge of how power works in Washington. Filled with deep reporting and immersive storytelling, this remarkable portrait of the most important female politician in American history is an essential inside look at the woman who may be our next president.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Some fascinating info, with too much insider gossip 20 mars 2014
Par Rule 62 Ken - Publié sur
HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton tells the story of Hillary Rodham Clinton from the time of her 2008 defeat for the Democratic Party's nomination for President of the United States, to the present, as she contemplates another run for the big prize. Written by Politico White House Bureau Chief Jonathan Allen and White House correspondent (for The Hill newspaper) Amie Parnes, the book pieces together a number of conversations from sources obviously close to the former First Lady and Secretary of State, to give the reader insight into her remarkable drive and energy.

The story begins with the loss of the 2008 campaign, the post-mortem and laying of blame (mostly at the feet of Clinton's campaign manager Patty Solis-Doyle). It goes on to describe the courtship of Hillary by President Barack Obama into the key cabinet position of Secretary of State, the mending of fences and healing of wounds remaining from the hard fought campaign between the two party front-runners and their staffs, and the resulting trust gap that existed. A power struggle develops over whether key positions in the State Department will be filled by Obama's people or Clinton's, and we are told of the strength of confidence possessed by the new Secretary of State in setting her own terms for accepting the President's challenge.

The book goes on to describe the remarkable transition of how Hillary Clinton went from becoming Obama's chief rival to his hardest working and most trusted cabinet member. A secondary story is told of how Bill Clinton goes from becoming one of the people that Obama dreads contact with to becoming an important asset to his re-election in 2012. The authors also tell us of how the Clintons continue to reward their friends and smite their enemies in electoral contests, even at timed when this may conflict with the wishes of the President.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the book for me was the recounting of the details of some of the most notorious moments of Hillary Clinton's tenure at the State Department, including the killing of Osama Bin Laden, and the attack on the Benghazi State Consulate (in which Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed). The book also describes that incident's significance in the 2012 Presidential election, the subsequent senate hearings and the fallout from the incident on the political career of Hillary Clinton.

The final section of the book explores the issue of whether or not Hillary Clinton will run for President and what steps are being taken to prepare for such an eventuality. Although the authors are coy on the answer, they spend far too many pages in the book for the case to be other than their unspoken assumption that a Hillary for President in 2016 Campaign is a done deal. They even speculate on the make-up of the campaign team and fundraising operations.

The authors think very highly of their subject, writing of her ability and work ethic in glowing terms. At times this is suspect, such as when they tend to suggest that she may have been the tipping point for President Obama's decision to go after Osama Bin Laden. The authors are not overly blatant in their praise for their subject, but this book should not be confused with an objective assessment of Hillary Clinton.

At times the book is too full of dropped names of political operatives and staffers that mean nothing to the average reader, and this tends to slow the book down. At other times, stories are told of incidents involving staffers and insiders which might be of interest to Washington based gossip circles, but add little to the history of the book's subject. As a result, only about 40% of this book will hold the reader's interest captive, while the rest is best saved for Washington insiders.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Feeling 'snookered'! 26 juin 2014

After hearing interviews with the author, I thought this would be an even handed, inside look of the woman who 'would' be President. Instead, I found myself reading an 'on-going' love fest, rose throwing very one sided view. Still, there are no accomplishments noted for the ex-Secretary Of State but a lot of excuses made for her failures. I found this public, sloppy 'licking' of Hillary so cloying I couldn't get through the book!

As other reviewers have pointed-out, this book is replete with the names of third-tier players, many of which are now long gone. Too many details about the squabbling of these uninteresting people whose behaviour is borderline childish and petulant. The book does offer some insight into the workings of the executive branch ... but one is left wishing for one's previous blissfull ignorance.

Another Puff Piece for Hillary. When will someone write from an objective standpoint? Interesting but not as insightful as I had hoped.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Hillary Hagiography 30 avril 2014
Par Jane W. Robbins - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Well-researched, but definitely slanted. How is it possible to write a book with multiple chapters about the Benghazi scandal and not mention Hillary's remark to the murdered men's families that the government would punish the video maker who supposedly provoked the "riot"? At the time she said this (at the ceremony when the coffins were returned), she knew the video had nothing to do with it. And what does her remark, even if she thought the video was involved, say about her views on the First Amendment? I was disappointed in the author's lack of objectivity.
