Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72

Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail '72 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The late Thompson's inimitable style of "gonzo" journalism was on full display in this series of articles originally written for and serialized in Rolling Stone magazine, covering the 1972 Democratic presidential primaries through the subsequent blowout defeat of Senator McGovern by President Nixon (which greatly demoralized Thompson, a supporter of McGovern from early in the primaries). While reporting on campaign events, Thompson never bothered to hide his disdain for much of the American political process or for the mainstream media's treatment of American politics. As with others of Thompson's books, illustrations by Ralph Steadman accompany the text; unfortunately their reproduction (and that of the photographs) in this edition is poorer that fans of Steadman might have hoped. This is a reprint of the 1983 book. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
