A New York Times best-selling author and USA Today Washington bureau chief offers a new biography of Nancy Pelosi, one of the most powerful women in American politics.
Nancy D'Alesandro Pelosi didn't begin running for office until she was forty-six years old, her five children mostly out of the nest. Since then she has lived on the cutting edge of the revolution in both women's roles and in the nation's movement to a fiercer and more polarized politics. She has been a crucial friend or formidable foe to U.S. presidents, a master legislator, and an indefatigable political warrior. When Donald Trump was elected to the White House, Pelosi became the Democratic counterpart best able to stand up to the disruptive president and to get under his skin. The battle between Trump and Pelosi, chronicled in this book with behind-the-scenes details and revelations, stands to be the titanic political struggle of our time. -- adapted from jacket
