What they said about
SHADOWS OF HOPE
by Sam Smith. . .
The first book to raise
serious questions about Bill Clinton
"[Compared to The
Agenda] Smith's book is by far the wiser and more useful and
certainly the more entertaining of the two. . . [Bob Woodward's]
judgments, when he works up the energy to make any, are purely
mundane. Smith, on the other hand, is turned on by politics.
. .His saucy judgments remind one of the way H. L. Mencken handled
presidential campaigns." -- Robert Sherrill, The Texas
"Smith offers [a]
community based, participatory politics that's neither left nor
right wing but the whole bird. . . . His work is not different
from what quality journalism ought to be: truth-seeking, independent,
fair-minded and debunking." -- Colman McCarthy, Washington
critics will appreciate his role as an unaligned skeptic. In
an age of sound bites and increasing political homogenization,
"Shadows of Hope" is an encouraging sign that independent
analysis is still alive." -- Michael Rust., Washingon
"Smith's book really
shines in the final chapter, in which he offers nothing less
than a blueprint for citizen recapture of government." --
Tom McNichols, Washington City Paper
"So acute an observer
of Clinton is Smith that I had to be forcibly restrained from
quoting several yards of his book." -- Edith Efron, Reason
"If you want an understanding
of how all ideas in Washington DC are eventually trivialized
and mulched by the chipper-shredder of media politics, it is
Smith's book rather than Woodward's that provides the insight.
. . As freely as [Woodward's] sources spoke, The Agenda is, oddly
enough, not filled with memorable quotes. Fortunately, Shadows
has an abundance of them. " -- James J. McCusker, Everett,
In the style and tradition
of I. F. Stone -- Eugene McCarthy
Lively, astute and powerful
critique of the Clinton approach to our national crises. It raises
profound questions about our two-party system as a corruption
of the democratic ideal -- Historian and author Howard Zinn
Unlike most studies of
sitting presidents, Sam Smith's common sense portrayal of the
multiple identities and goals of the postmodern Clinton administration
could easily become the abiding themes of later interpretations.
. .A clarion warning about the increasingly meaningless and undemocratic
nature of sound-byte American politics -- Historian and author

HOW WE GOT INTO THIS MESS: An excerpt from Shadows of Hope, the

of Clinton and his administration.

STILL AT LARGE
& THE SCANDALS
In 1992, several months before Clinton's
nomination, The Progressive Review became the first publication
to assemble the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that would come to
be known as the Clinton scandals. The Review identified a score
of questionable individuals and institutions central to the story
-- including Webster Hubbell, Dan Lasater and Mochtar Riady.
In 1994, Shadows of Hope, by Review
editor Sam Smith, was published by Indiana University Press.
It was the first book to challenge the media-driven Clinton myth.
Shadows of Hope examined Clinton's post-modern contempt
for candor, consistency and character, and discussed the problems
this might cause the nation.
In October 1996, the Review reported that
"there seems to be adequate grounds for impeachment,"
based on the suborning of witnesses, obstruction of justice,
and abuse of FBI files.
In June 1997, the Review published a draft presidential impeachment
resolution. The resolution was identical to one used in a prior
instance except that the name Richard Nixon had been replaced
with the name William Jefferson Clinton.
To this day, the Review remains one of
the few publications in America that recognizes that the Clinton
story was not about sex but about mob politics -- the intertwining
of corrupt politicians with drug trafficking, other organized
crime, rogue intelligence operations, and international espionage.
