About this title


The author of On the Edge chronicles the continuing clash between the Clinton White House and the Republican-dominated Congress, focusing on such key people as Dole, Gingrich, and Gramm as they struggle over taxes, welfare, health care, and other issues. 60,000 first printing. Tour.


Elizabeth Drew is a reporter's reporter. She goes after the facts with a vengeance, sorts through the issues, absorbs the full context and then lays out the tale in simple yet intelligent language. Her subjects in Showdown offer plenty of material for a behind-the-scenes look at a rather tumultuous time in Washington. She contends that House Speaker Newt Gingrich went too far in his fervor to scale back government. Meanwhile, the Clinton White House helped itself by standing up to Gingrich but failed to answer many of the hard questions of the debate.
