About the book:

Drawing on her superb skills as a probing journalist and shrewd analyst, Washington reporter Elizabeth Drew details precisely how money and ideology, as well as a lower quality of politicians and lower standards of political behavior, have debased American politics over the past twenty-five years. Wise, insightful, and timely, The Corruption of American Politics offers invaluable suggestions as to how we can restore our government to be responsive to the needs of its citizens.

"[Drew] nimbly brings to life the machinations on Capitol Hill and the White House with fresh perspective, behind-the-scenes detail and convincing analysis. . . . In fact, Drew's examination of campaign finance makes a compelling narrative."--Richard L. Berke, The New York Times Book Review

". . . one of the most skillfully written, as well as insightful, looks inside the Beltway to appear in a very long time."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"There is no one better on Washington than Elizabeth Drew."--Joan Didion

"What Rachel Carson was to the nascent environmental movement of the 1960s, Drew is to the campaign finance reform movement of the 1990s. . . . [A] profoundly important and disturbing work . . . Elegant, magisterial, and persuasive, this book establishes Drew as the political conscience of the nation."--Library Journal
