Whayne (Chair of the History Department and Professor of History at the University of Arkansas), and Donald R. Kelley (Director of the Fulbright Institute of International Relations and Professor of Comparative Politics at the University of Arkansas), The Clinton Riddle: Perspectives On The Forty-Second President is a groundbreaking anthology of contributions that interdisciplinary scholars created specifically for a 2002 gathering to critically evaluate the legacy of the Clinton-Gore administration. Topics discussed include the status of women and minorities, issues concerning President Clinton's character, foreign policy, and the media. The wide diversity of viewpoints combine to offer as much insight as reasonably possible into the "Clinton riddle", in this welcome contribution to modern American history and political science reference shelves.
