A quarter of a century after All the President's Men stunned the nation, Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff gives us an equally explosive behind-the-scenes account of the scandals that rocked the Clinton presidency in his critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Uncovering Clinton.

As a reporter for the Washington Post and Newsweek, Michael Isikoff established himself as an astute observer of the Clinton presidency. But as he investigated allegations of presidential misconduct, he unwittingly became a primary character in the unfolding drama. This is a story he alone could tell -- not only a gripping narrative populated by an entertainingly bizarre cast of characters, but also a nuanced and scrupulously fair account of the major players and events in the Clinton scandals. It is surely the definitive account of our nation's biggest political scandal since Watergate.
