Hillary Rodham Clinton is known to hundreds of millions of people around the world. Yet few beyond her close friends and family have ever heard her account of her extraordinary journey. She writes with candor, humor and passion about her upbringing in suburban, middle-class America in the 1950s and her transformation from Goldwater Girl to student activist to controversial First Lady. Living History is her revealing memoir of life through the White House years. It is also her chronicle of living history with Bill Clinton, a thirty-year adventure in love and politics that survives personal betrayal, relentless partisan investigations and constant public scrutiny.


Hillary Rodham Clinton came of age during a time of tumultuous social and political change in America. Like many women of her generation, she grew up with choices and opportunities unknown to her mother or grandmother. She charted her own course through unexplored terrain -- responding to the changing times and her own internal compass -- and became an emblem for some and a lightning rod for others. Wife, mother, lawyer, advocate and international icon, she has lived through America's great political wars, from Watergate to Whitewater.

The only First Lady to play a major role in shaping domestic legislation, Hillary Rodham Clinton traveled tirelessly around the country to champion health care, expand economic and educational opportunity and promote the needs of children and families, and she crisscrossed the globe on behalf of women's rights, human rights and democracy. She redefined the position of First Lady and helped save the presidency from an unconstitutional, politically motivated impeachment. Intimate, powerful and inspiring, Living History captures the essence of one of the most remarkable women of our time and the challenging process by which she came to define herself and find her own voice -- as a woman and as a formidable figure in American politics.

    BarnesandNoble.com, editorial review

  • “[Hillary] Clinton has produced a surprisingly engaging and, at points, even compelling book.

She presents intriguing new details on her role in shaping the policies of her husband’s presidency.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “The only thing that matters, with any book, is this: Is it worth reading? And in the case of Living History, the answer is yes...it’s going to be hard for any but the most partisan to ignore her grace and her mix of self-confidence and the insecurities that seem to burden us all.”

    Kansas City Star

  • Living History is a solidly written, personal account from a major player in one of this country’s most politically contentious periods. It is an important part of the record.”

    Denver Post

  • “All in all, her infectious sense of optimism and unwavering energy shine through in her delivery and will leave listeners with a new respect for the former First Lady.”

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by sani | 2/1/2014

    " My intention of reading this book was to hear her side of the story. Now that I've heard it, well... what can I say... some politicians are always trying to take advantage of every situations. You can tolerate it sometimes, but there are times when enough is enough. Potraying American politicans as the heroes saving the Muslims in ex-Yugoslavia is simply absurd. "
