Blackwell North Amer William Jefferson 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 reelected to office. Among other accomplishments, low unemployment and inflation rates and a decrease in crime have led many people to declare that during Clinton's administration the United States enjoyed more peace and economic well-being than at any other time in history. 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.
