Summary
"Returning to Gingrich's childhood in Pennsylvania and his formative years as a young history professor, Citizen Newt moves through Gingrich's first forays into politics and takes readers behind the scenes of the Congressman's crucial role in the Reagan Revolution, his battles with George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and his masterly orchestration of 1994s "Gingrich Revolution" and the Contract with America, which catapulted him to national prominence and forever changed congressional and national politics. Drawing upon untold stories from Gingrich and those who know him best--political allies and opponents, Washington insiders and political iconoclasts, Capitol Hill staffers and colleagues--Shirley has crafted a fascinating, humorous, humanizing, and insightful account of a true American original." --
