Read full description of the books:
In No One Left to Lie To, a New York Times bestseller, Christopher Hitchens casts an unflinching eye on Bill Clinton and his presidency and offers a searing indictment of a president who sought to hold power at any cost.
With blistering wit and meticulous documentation, the incomparable Christopher Hitchens masterfully deconstructs Clinton's terms as President of the United States, studying his abject propensity for pandering to the Left while delivering to the Right, and arguing that the personal transgressions that plagued Clinton's reputation and presidency were ultimately indistinguishable from his political corruption. Hitchens dexterously questions what so few have, from the former president's refusals to deny accusations of rape, to the shortsightedness of so many of his political maneuvers -- the welfare bill, his "ludicrous" war on drugs, and his abandonment of homosexuals with the enactment of the Defense of Marriage Act, among others.

Read information about the authorChristopher Eric Hitchens was an English-born American author, journalist and literary critic. He was a contributor to Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, World Affairs, The Nation, Slate, Free Inquiry and a variety of other media outlets. Hitchens was also a political observer, whose best-selling books — the most famous being God Is Not Great — made him a staple of talk shows and lecture circuits. He was also a media fellow at the Hoover Institution.
Hitchens was a polemicist and intellectual. While he was once identified with the Anglo-American radical political left, near the end of his life he embraced some arguably right-wing causes, most notably the Iraq War. Formerly a Trotskyist and a fixture in the left wing publications of both the United Kingdom and United States, Hitchens departed from the grassroots of the political left in 1989 after what he called the "tepid reaction" of the European left following Ayatollah Khomeini's issue of a fatwa calling for the murder of Salman Rushdie, but he stated on the Charlie Rose show aired August 2007 that he remained a "Democratic Socialist."
The September 11, 2001 attacks strengthened his embrace of an interventionist foreign policy, and his vociferous criticism of what he called "fascism with an Islamic face." He is known for his ardent admiration of George Orwell, Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson, and for his excoriating critiques of Mother Teresa, Henry Kissinger and Bill Clinton.
Hitchens was an anti-theist, and he described himself as a believer in the Enlightenment values of secularism, humanism, and reason.
