In 1994 Benjamin R. Barber was invited by President Clinton to
participate in a seminar on the future of democratic ideas and
ideals. Following their meeting, Barber became an informal
consultant to the Clinton White House, working with a president who
proved to be an astonishing listener open to a variety of ideas.
Barber's experiences were unexpected and enlightening-the most
unpredictable being his interactions with the president himself.
Barber's meditation on Bill Clinton's tenure in office offers a
balanced and complex portrait of the Clinton administration,
especially in its relationship to America's intellectual and
scholarly community. Barber also identifies the true faultlines of
power that future candidates must negotiate if they are to win an
election. For this edition, Barber has written a new afterword
reflecting on Clinton's "vision" problem, his controversial role in
shaping today's Democratic Party, and his efforts to confront the
challenges of interdependence and terrorism. He concludes with a
provocative assessment of Hillary Clinton as a Democratic primary
candidate in the battle for the presidency.
