David Brock, America’s most controversial journalist, has taken on the most controversial first lady in history, producing a boldly incisive yet surprisingly sensitive portrait. The Hillary Rodham who emerges from these pages is not just a fascinating and important figure in her own right but the figurehead and unofficial leader of an activist liberal cohort that was born in the social and civil unrest of the 1960s and has risen to the highest levels of American government. A political biography of the highest order, The Seduction of Hillary Rodham is the story of one strong-willed woman’s struggle to maintain her personal and political integrity in the face of powerfully seductive forces: the allure of a religiously inspired progressive ideology that engendered easy certitudes; the temptations of exercising unencumbered political power in a one-party state; and above all, the appeal of Bill Clinton, a charismatic, talented, but deeply flawed man who may have been both the best and worst thing that ever happened to Hillary Rodham.
With unparalleled depth, Brock profiles Hillary’s early mentors; delves into the byzantine world of Arkansas politics; and describes in explicit detail what Hillary has done to ensure Bill’s meteoric rise to the top of American politics. Along the way, Hillary comes to terms with the strains in her marriage and undergoes multiple makeovers for the sake of an unprecedented political partnership. She plays an extensive role in staffing the Clinton White House and shaping its agenda, but her vaunted health care initiative ends in spectacular collapse and much of the still-brewing Whitewater scandal is laid at her door.
Concluding that Hillary is neither the selfless and untarnished icon that her allies would portray nor the scheming Lady MacBeth of conservative demonology, Brock illuminates the character and actions of one of America’s most poorly understood and unfairly maligned public figures.₵30.00
In our age of depersonalization, Frankl teaches the value of living to the fullest.
Upon his death in 1997, Viktor E. Frankl was lauded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time. The Unheard Cry for Meaning marked his return to the humanism that made Man’s Search for Meaning a bestseller around the world. In these selected essays, written between 1947 and 1977, Dr. Frankl illustrates the vital importance of the human dimension in psychotherapy. Using a wide range of subjects—including sex, morality, modern literature, competitive athletics, and philosophy—he raises a lone voice against the pseudo-humanism that has invaded popular psychology and psychoanalysis. By exploring mankind’s remarkable qualities, he brilliantly celebrates each individual’s unique potential, while preserving the invaluable traditions of both Freudian analysis and behaviorism.₵50.00
