Hillary Rising: The Politics, Persona and Policies of a New American Dynasty
On 12th April 2015, Hillary Clinton formally announced her intention to run for President, casting herself as the 'champion of everyday Americans'. With universal name recognition and the promise to make history as the first female occupant of the Oval Office, all seems set for Hillary to secure the one role that has eluded her to date. But what drives this most intriguing and polarising of political figures? And, perhaps more importantly, what kind of President would she make?
Drawing on original interviews with close associates of both Bill and Hillary, as well as a wealth of recently declassified materials from the Clinton archive, Boys offers a clear-sighted, non-partisan analysis of Hillary's political rise.
Dr. James D. Boys is a political historian specializing in the United States and its place in the world. He has a special interest in the study of the United States’ presidency and specifically in the administration of Bill Clinton. James is a familiar face to viewers of BBC News, Sky News CNBC and Al Jazeera.
A Q&A session will follow.
