This volume of over thirty essays is organised around five primary dimensions of Hillary Clinton's influence: policy, activism, campaigns, women's ambition and impact on parents and their children. Combining personal narrative with scholarly expertise in political science, this volume looks at American politics through the career of Hillary Clinton in order to illuminate overarching trends related to elections, gender and public policy. Featuring an extraordinarily varied list of contributors working within the field of political science, and a fresh interdisciplinary approach, this book will appeal to broad range of politically engaged audiences, practitioners and scholars.

Reviews for The Hillary Effect: Perspectives on Clinton's Legacy

Cargile, Davis, Merolla and VanSickle-Ward assembled an exciting volume of diverse perspectives to commemorate the enduring effects of Hillary Clinton's career.
