Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In One Nation Under Sex, free speech activist and notorious Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt teams up with Columbia University history professor David Eisenbach to peek behind the White House bedroom curtains and document how hidden passions have shaped public life. They unpack salacious rumors and outright scandals, showing how private affairs have driven pivotal decisions—often with horrific consequences. Along the way, they explore the origins of Americas fascination with sex scandals and explain how we can put aside our political moralism and begin focusing on the real problems that threaten our nation.
