Bill and Hillary: The Politics of the Personal

William Chafe

In his book, the distinguished historian Chafe boldly argues that the trajectory of the Clintons’ political lives can be understood only through the prism of their personal relationship. From the day they first met at Yale Law School, Bill and Hillary were inseparable, even though their relationship was inherently volatile. The personal dynamic between them would go on to determine their political fates.

Chafe’s many insights add texture and depth to our understanding of the Clintons’ experience together. This book from one of our preeminent historians, Bill and Hillary is the definitive account of the Clintons’ relationship and its far-reaching impact on American political life.
