Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two of America's most perceptive political reporters join forces for an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the race for the White House in Politico's Playbook 2012, a series of four instant digital books on the 2012 presidential election. The first edition, The Right Fights Back, follows the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

The battle for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination promises to be one of the most hotly contested and closely fought in recent memory, as establishment Republicans, Tea Party favorites, and dark horse insurgents vie to take on President Obama in the November election. In The Right Fights Back, Mike Allen, chief White House correspondent for Politico, and Evan Thomas, the award-winning journalist and author of Robert F. Kennedy and The War Lovers, chronicle the dramatic events of this historic campaign as it unfolds.

With exclusive real-time reporting from the campaign trail, The Right Fights Back provides detail, color, and in-depth analysis that take readers beyond the hourly headlines and commentary. From the role of Super PACS and conservative interest groups to the clashes of personality and policy that will define the race to capture the GOP nomination, this is a history-as-it-happens account of the resurgent American right at the crossroads.

About the Author

Mike Allen is the chief White House correspondent for POLITICO and the author of the renowned daily political tip sheet, POLITICO Playbook. Previously, he served as White House correspondent for Time and spent six years at The Washington Post, where he covered President Bush’s first term, Capitol Hill, campaign finance, and the Bush, Gore, and Bradley campaigns of 2000.

Evan Thomas is the author of seven books, including the New York Times bestsellers John Paul Jones and Sea of Thunder. He was an editor and writer for Time from 1977 to 1986 and for Newsweek from 1986 to 2010. In 1999 he won a National Magazine Award for his writing on the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He is currently Ferris Professor of Journalism at Princeton and a regular panelist on the syndicated public affairs TV show, Inside Washington.

POLITICO is a nonpartisan, Washington-based political journalism organization that serves as the one-stop shop for the fastest, deepest coverage of the president, Congress, and the 2012 presidential race. POLITICO’s journalists break news and drive conversation about the White House, Capitol Hill, and Washington lobbying, plus the intersection of politics with Wall Street, the media, and personalities.
