About this title

Synopsis:

Robert McNeely -- President Bill Clinton's official photographer from 1992 to 1998 -- has traveled the world and roamed the halls of the White House, a virtual fly-on-the-wall, documenting the day-to-day political and private lives of President Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. The Clinton Years presents in dramatic detail a behind-the-scenes look at the White House with intriguing glimpses into the personal side of Clinton's presidency.

Clinton trusted McNeely's vision completely and granted him full access to the inner workings of the presidency. McNeely was Clinton's constant shadow, quietly recording for posterity the president's moods, his reactions to key moments and events, his prowess as a politician, his personal charisma and presence, and his interactions with world leaders. An intimate look at the man behind the politician, this collection also reveals Clinton's relationships with his wife, his staff, his public and the world. These striking images compel the viewer to recognize what an extraordinarily complex individual Bill Clinton is. It is more than a portrait of a president; it is an education about the presidency. The Clinton Years is an essential record of Bill Clinton's legacy.

"The Clinton Years tells for the first time the real story of this administration in photos. For those of us who were there, these photos by White House photographer Bob McNeely are more revealing in their emotions than all of the words that have been written about this president."

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School-As the official White House photographer from 1993 to 1998, McNeely had free access to document the Clinton Administration. From the 20,000 rolls of film he shot, he offers 200 of his best candid photos, all black and white. They show a wide range of presidential activities, from speech-writing sessions and meetings with world leaders to private family moments. Only very brief captions accompany the central photo section, but further insights are provided in a lively introduction by historian Douglas Brinkley and an interesting afterword by McNeely himself. Unfortunately, this layout and the lack of an index challenge readers to appreciate fully the photographic qualities and stories inherent in the photos, and make it difficult to find specific subject matter. For example, one photo shows Clinton and Gore in a strikingly relaxed and personal moment with the Dalai Lama "in Vice President Gore's office." Over 100 pages later, another picture shows an uncomfortable-looking Clinton with the president of China in a highly formal meeting "in the Blue Room." Both are fascinating images, but to realize their full implications, or even to find them, readers must read both introduction and afterword, awkwardly flipping back and forth to the photos referred to in the texts. Still, whether it is simply browsed for its human interest, appreciated for its photographic art, or read and studied for the insight it provides into both history and photojournalism, this is a valuable resource for citizens, students, or photography buffs.-Christine C.
