Pulitzer Prize-nominee Susan Bordo’s The Destruction of Hillary Clinton (Text, 9781925603026, 3 April, $32.99) is a gripping, blow-by-blow analysis of how Hillary Clinton—an extraordinarily well-qualified, experienced and admired candidate—came to lose the 2016 presidential election to an opponent seen as not just unelectable but unfit for office.
In this masterful account, Bordo unpacks the campaign, examining the right-wing assault on Clinton and her reputation, the way the left provoked suspicion and indifference in a younger generation, and the unprecedented influence of the media on the campaign.
This urgent, insightful, and engrossing work of nonfiction will be released simultaneously in the US and Australia on 3 April, and will be supported by a major local marketing and publicity campaign.
