Destruction of Hillary Clinton – Susan Bordo
In a mere few months during the 2016 presidential campaign, the accomplished and poised former Senator and Secretary of State was turned into something unrecognizable.

What happened? In a week-by-week narrative of the campaign year – from the primaries through election day – Bordo deconstructs the various forces that contributed to Hillary Clinton’s political destruction.
