About this title

Synopsis:

In A Vast Conspiracy, the best-selling author of The Run of His Life casts an insightful, unbiased eye over the most extraordinary public saga of our time - the Clinton sex scandals. A superlative journalist known for the skillfulness of his investigating and the power of his writing, Jeffrey Toobin tells the unlikely story of the events that began over doughnuts in a Little Rock hotel and ended on the floor of the United States Senate, with only the second vote on presidential removal in American history. This is an entirely fresh look at the scandal that very nearly brought down a president.

Packed with news-making disclosures and secret documents published here for the first time, Toobin unravels the three strands of a national scandal - those leading from Paula Jones, Kenneth Starr, and Monica Lewinsky - that created a legal, personal, and political disaster for Bill Clinton. A Vast Conspiracy is written with the narrative drive of a sensational (if improbable) legal thriller, and Toobin brilliantly explores the high principle and low comedy that were the hallmarks of the story. From Tripp to Goldberg, Isikoff to Hyde, the complex and tangled motivations behind the scandal are laid bare.

While misguided, outlandish behavior was played out at the very highest level, Toobin analyzes the facts and the key figures with a level of dignity and insight that this story has not yet received. The Clinton scandals will shape forever how we think about the signature issues of our day - sex and sexual harassment, privacy and perjury, civil rights, and, yes, cigars. Toobin's book will shape forever how we think about the Clinton scandals.

Review:

Thomas Powers

"The New York Times Book Review"

An admirably clear, vigorously written, plain-spoken and common-sensical book.



"The Economist"

A good read...a brave book.



Floyd Abrams

"The New York Observer"

A superlatively researched and written book.



"People"

A story as taut and surprising as any thriller....Unimpeachable page-turner.



Wayne Woodlief

"Boston Herald"

A richly detailed narrative...[and] a fascinating read.



David Kaiser

"The Boston Globe"

An irresistibly readable new overview of the whole ugly case.



Anthony Lewis

"The New York Review of Books"

A superb work of factual and legal analysis....Few novels are as gripping.



"Chicago Sun-Times"

A rich and readable reprise of the Clinton scandals by the New Yorker writer who shows brilliantly how the American legal system spun out of control.



Michael Coffey

"Publishers Weekly"

Toobin has risen to the challenge of rendering the chaos of the impeachment, what led up to it and its denouement, in a sharp prose style and in a manner that makes sense of a disastrous phase of American political history.



The Economist A good read...a brave book.
