Bill Clinton, 42nd president of the United States, served two terms in the White House and became the first Democratic president since Franklin D. Roosevelt to be re-elected to office. Among other accomplishments, a low unemployment and inflation rate and a decrease in crime have led many influential people to declare that during his administration the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well-being than at any other time in its history. Comprehensive and easy to navigate, The Clinton Years gives readers a full perspective of Bill Clinton's presidency, from his successful economic policies to his relations with Monica Lewinsky. This comprehensive A-to-Z reference contains more than 250 biographical entries examining the main politicians and foreign leaders during the administration, and includes a number of primary source documents such as presidential speeches and executive decisions.
