Lawrence O’Donnell's Book On The 1968 Presidential Election

Book cover - Playing with Fire

Lawrence O’Donnell has been a student of American politics for most of his life. A former senior advisor to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, chief of staff of two Senate committees, an Emmy Award-winning executive producer and writer for “The West Wing,” and now host of his own MSNBC show “The Last Word,” O’Donnell has a coveted front row seat to American democracy in action.

While recent elections, still fresh in all our memories, produced many crazy headlines and tumultuous debates, “Playing With Fire: The 1968 Election and the Transformation of American Politics” vividly recreates an even darker, more chaotic time in our nation’s history, in which one election was literally a “matter of life and death - nothing less.”
