“Just as the necessary qualification for a good liar is a good memory, so the essential equipment of a would-be lie detector is a good timeline, and a decent archive.”

In the New York Times bestseller No One Left to Lie To, Christopher Hitchens casts an unflinching eye on the Clinton political machine and offers a searing indictment of a president who sought to hold power at any cost.

With blistering wit and meticulous documentation, Hitchens masterfully deconstructs Clinton’s abject propensity for pandering to the Left while delivering to the Right, and he argues that the president’s personal transgressions were ultimately inseparable from his political corruption.

Hitchens questions the president’s refusals to deny accusations of rape by reputable women and lambasts, among numerous impostures, his insistence on playing the race card, the shortsightedness of his welfare bill, his ludicrous war on drugs, and his abandonment of homosexuals in the form of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Opportunistic statecraft, crony capitalism, “divide and rule” identity politics, and populist manipulations, these are perhaps Clinton’s greatest and most enduring legacies.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Christopher Hitchens is a remarkable commentator. He jousts with fraudulence of every stripe and always wins. I regret he has only one life, one mind, and one reputation to put at the service of my country.”

    Joseph Heller, New York Times bestselling author

  • You don't buy Christopher Hitchens's book because you want to find out whether Bill Clinton is really as terrible a liar as some people say he is. You buy it because you know he is a terrible liar, and the invitation to have a pungent fellow like Hitchens confirm every prejudice you ever had on the subject, plus a few you might not even have known you had, is an invitation you cannot resist. Louis Menand, New York Times Magazine
  • By far the best of all the books on the Clinton era. Edward Said, Al-Ahram Weekly
  • With a witty bluntness uncommon in today's political discourse, Hitchens boldly puts the pieces of the Clinton puzzle together-and isn't afraid to describe the result . . . Hitchens's brave willingness to show all the sordid scenarios in which our emperor has removed his clothes is beyond refreshing. Karen Lehrman, New York Times Book Review

    Observer (London)

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liam89 | 2/20/2014

    " Britain's finest essayist exposes "the reptilian" president for what he believes him to be: a war criminal, a psychopathic liar, and a rapist. Though some claims are open to debate, and some seem sensationalist, on major issues such as the destruction of the pharmaceutical plant in Sudan, or the hollowing out of the American welfare system, the Hitch presents a serious challenge to American liberals. "

    " I read the original version of this back in the late '90s. I thought it was poorly written and filled with unsupported arguments. At one point, early in the book, the author, in an almost casual way, accuses Bill Clinton of rape. He offers no evidence and the charge is quickly dropped, never mentioned for the remainder of this book. Whenever I hear someone celebrate Hitchens as a "public intellectual" I think of this book and wonder what they are talking about. I get the public part, but the intellectual bit is quite a stretch. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 2/12/2014

    " Brief, but devestating. Shocking, even a decade later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 2/10/2014

    " Christopher Hitchens pulls no punches in this short book about the lies of the Clinton era. His writing style is top notch and filled with wit and humor as he describes the lies told by them. Although rather short, the book should be read by all the "Clintoniods". He might be a "hard dog to keep on the porch",but maybe we can keep them out of office. I really enjoyed it!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diego | 2/6/2014

    " Oh just too good. Highly recommended!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Carter | 1/31/2014

    " Made me angry, but I love politics, and it was good to read a new type of critique against the Clintons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 1/14/2014

    " As a liberal dude, I blame Bill Clinton for George Bush. That's right. If Bill Clinton can manage his power and his hypersexuality for just 8 friggin years, and Al Gore can avoid the disasterous decision of picking Joe Lieberman, our country is 100% different. "

    " well....one less illusion for me. good riddance. "

    " Nothing I say could do him enough justice. There was only one Christopher Hitchens and nobody else comes even close. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Powell | 12/23/2013

    " Fascinating, somewhat dated (on purpose) thoroughly disgusting look at US Presidential politics thru the sick lens of the Clintons "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 12/19/2013

    " A devastating portrait of the Clintons from a left-oriented perspective. Like most everything I've read by Hitchens, the book is a treasure of insight, information, and wit marred by non-existent organization and ostentatious display learning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 12/17/2013

    " This book is driven by Hitchens' obsessive and hilarious hatred of the Clintons. It's short and it reminded me of what a complete asshole Bill Clinton was/is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheyenne Blue | 12/12/2013

    " I've enjoyed Hitchens' atheistic ranting, so I thought I'd see what he has to say about the Clintons. Hitchens has bolstered my thoughts that there are no good guys in politics, and that it's never a good idea to allow political dynasties. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Varmint | 12/2/2013

    " loaned my copy out years ago. am desperately trying to get it back. may suddenly be relevant again. "

    " Someone once commented that not all of bob dylans music was brilliant but it is all worth a listen. Same goes for the late Christopher hitchens - not all of his writing is brilliant but it is all worth a read. This book goes in the latter category. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 9/29/2013

    " An indictament of the Clintons..from a liberal perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philip Bolton, Jr. | 12/21/2012

    " Depressing yet had to be read. For the good times that the 1990s seemed to be, a lot of truth to still be discovered. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamey | 12/2/2012

    " I miss him, too. But this book was, well, pretty good. And, just so there's no ambiguity here, Dubya should burn in Hell. "

    " The book reads somewhat like a tabloid, and the smug tone was an obstacle that simply wasn't needed. Overall I enjoyed the book for the bottom line details. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate O'Hanlon | 5/15/2012

    " A welcome credible counter-text to the left's Clinton apologists. Of its time and a little hard to follow at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thomas Simmons | 4/15/2012

    " Hitchens wrote to amuse and outrage; to arouse emotional rather than rational response. He did not write to inform, he did not write to enlighten. He was absolutely full of bile. He has not done anything different there. But he did write well. "
