The Death of American Virtue: Clinton Vs. Starr Now Being Used in Political Science Course at Carlow University
Ten years after one of the most polarizing political scandals in American history, author Ken Gormley offers an insightful, balanced, and revealing analysis of the events leading up to the impeachment trial of President William Jefferson Clinton. From Ken Starr’s initial Whitewater investigation through the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit to the Monica Lewinsky affair, The Death of American Virtue is a gripping chronicle of an ever-escalating political feeding frenzy. In exclusive interviews, Bill Clinton, Ken Starr, Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones, Susan McDougal, and many more key players offer candid reflections on that period. Drawing on never-before-released records and documents—including the Justice Department’s internal investigation into Starr, new details concerning the death of Vince Foster, and evidence from lawyers on both sides—Gormley sheds new light on a dark and divisive chapter, the aftereffects of which are still being felt in today’s political climate.
The Death of American Virtue: Clinton Vs. Starr has been selected at Carlow University for its Spring 2010, Introduction to Political Science course.
“Anyone who lived through the improbable sequence of events that led to the impeachment of President Clinton will be riveted by this vivid dissection of a saga of ambition, pride, and raw politics that diminished both a president and his prosecutor.”—LINDA GREENHOUSE, lecturer in law, Yale Law School, and former Supreme Court correspondent, New York Times
