Taylor Branch discute The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President.
The Clinton Tapes is the highly anticipated account of President Bill Clinton’s confidential diary project, a unique collaboration between Branch and President Clinton aimed at preserving the fullest record of this pivotal president. An unprecedented account based on 78 diary sessions between 1993 and 2001. The book highlights major events from Clinton’s two terms, including war in Bosnia, the anti-deficit crusade, health reform failure, anti-terrorist strikes, peace initiatives, the 1996 re-election campaign, and Whitewater investigations culminating in his 1999 impeachment trial. Taylor Branch’s main job was to prod the former president and Clinton was on the whole forthcoming. This is a rare look at the pressures of a job that Branch believes aged this relatively young president. This will be Taylor Branch’s first book since completing America in the King Years 1954-68, his landmark trilogy on the modern civil rights era. Its first volume, Parting the Waters (1988), won a Pulitzer Prize for History and the National Book Critics Circle award. Pillar of Fire and At Canaan’s Edge, the second and third books, were critically acclaimed and received many awards including the Sidney Hillman Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award.
