schema:description"A fascinating look at politics American style, The Pact offers a riveting account of two of America's most charismatic and influential leaders, detailing both, their differences and their striking similarities, and highlighting the profound and lasting impact the tumultuous 1960s had on both their personal and political lives. With the cooperation of both President Clinton and Speaker Gingrich, interviews with key players who have never before spoken about their experiences, along with unprecedented access to Gingrich's private papers, Gillon not only offers a behind-the scenes look at the budget impasse and the government shutdown in 1995 - the famous face-off between Clinton and Gingrich - but he also reveals how the two moved closer together after 1996, closer than anyone knew."@en
