Show synopsis From the Center to the Edge is the first historical interpretation of the politics and public policies of the Clinton administration. Eminent political historian William C. Berman describes in penetrating detail the origins, evolution, and transformation of Clinton's programs for change as well as the reasons for its various successes and failures. Berman sheds new light on both domestic matters-such as welfare reform, deficit reduction, and the impeachment process-and key foreign policy issues, including American relations with Russia and China, and the conflicts in Bosnia and Kosovo. From the Center to the Edge provides a balanced but critical perspective of the Clinton administration, and is strongly recommended for anyone interested in presidential politics and recent American history.
