Hillary's New History Book

NEW YORK, April 23, 2008 -- Simon & Schuster, Inc, is proud to announce the release of a new book by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton entitled "Interpreting History." It is a follow-up to her critically acclaimed autobiography, "Living History."

"It is an honor for us to once again present a novel by Senator Clinton," said David Rosenthal, Executive Vice President and Publisher, Simon & Schuster. "Her unique perspective on the world's events is something everyone should hear."

An excerpt from the book:

"The popular sentiment in the years following the great stock market crash of 1929 was that it had caused the Great Depression. That somehow, the billions of dollars that had been lost in the crash had led to high unemployment, mass poverty, and the loss of homes for many Americans.

However, through the passage of time, and viewing history in a new light, it is patently obvious that many Americans just simply quit their jobs. There weren't "layoffs." Many Americans simply decided to live in smaller homes. There weren't "shanty towns." Many Americans decided to move to California to invest in coastal real estate. The "dust bowl" wasn't as bad as all that.

It is important when examining history to remember that the world is only what you want it to be. For example, if you follow one set of rules, or one way of looking at things, you'll get one result. If you follow the 'real' way of looking at things, you'll get the result you want. Reality is in the eye of the beholder."

Some of the Chapter Titles from Senator Clinton's book:

Why the Vatican was Right and Galileo was Wrong
Why Dewey Really Did Defeat Truman
Why the United States was Victorious in Vietnam and
Why Some People Really Did Like the Spanish Inquisition
