New York: Random House, 1994. First Trade Edition. Hardcover. 25 cm, xii,509, pages. Illustrations. Index. Signed by both authors (Matalin and Carville). Never before has a more revealing X-ray been taken of the modern American presidential campaign than this compelling memoir of the nation's foremost political operatives, Democrat James Carville and Republican Mary Matalin. Not since Theodore White's legendary Making of the President series has a book on presidential campaigns so intimately recounted the power plays and clandestine maneuvers that are at the heart of American political dueling. James Carville and Mary Matalin, themselves the key players at the center of the political battles and election headlines that gripped America, tell in candid, stunning detail of the day-by-day pressures, near disasters, and triumphs of campaign life; they take the reader deeper than ever before into the art of getting a president elected. For anyone interested in politics and the way our nation chooses its leaders, All's Fair is a vital resource, and the most telling guide available to the inner workings of today's partisan conflict.
New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2004. This may be a Book Club Edition. First Printing. Hardcover. Oversized, 144 pages. Profusely illus., footnotes. Photographic research by Neil Giordano. This pictorial biography by a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian reinterprets the life of President Ulysses S. Grant. William Shield McFeely (born September 25, 1930) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American historian. He retired as the Abraham Baldwin Professor of the Humanities emeritus at the University of Georgia in 1997, and has been affiliated with Harvard University since 2006. McFeely received his B.A. from Amherst College in 1952, and Ph.D. in American Studies from Yale University in 1966. His dissertation, later the 1968 book Yankee Stepfather, explored the ill-fated Freedmen's Bureau which was created to help ex-slaves after the Civil War. While at Yale, he was instrumental in creating the African-American studies program at a time when such programs were still controversial. He taught for 16 years at Mount Holyoke College before joining the University of Georgia in 1986 as the Constance E. Smith Fellow. McFeely won the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography for his 1981 biography of Ulysses S. Grant, which portrayed the general and president in a harsh light, concluding that Grant "Did not rise above limited talents or inspire others to do so in ways that make his administration a credit to American politics." McFeely retired in 1997.
