Inside the White House
When Ronald Kessler's The FBI resulted in the dismissal of FBI Director William S. Sessions, it established Kessler as the preeminent examiner of secretive U.S. government organizations. Now Kessler focuses on the most myth-laden and clandestine institution of them all: the modern White House. From the hidden lives of the last seven presidents and first families to the intricate inner workings of this all-powerful institution, Kessler peels away the White House facade to reveal the fascinating and often scandalous reality behind the stately illusion.
With unprecedented access to Secret Service agents, domestic servants, Air Force One Stewards, and military aides, Kessler uncovers the disturbing truth -- from Johnson's blatant infidelities to Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton's sham marriage, and from the excesses of spoiled presidential children to the legendary all-night parties in the White House's underground vaults. Exposing presidential misconduct, blunders, and cover-ups, Inside the White House dramatically lifts the cloak of secrecy surrounding the presidency and reveals the men who acted as monarchs rather than public servants. This fascinating examination ensures that Americans will never view their chief executives the same way again.
Expanded and updated to include the remarkable political transformation that resulted in President Clinton's loss of power.
