Hardball: How Politics Is Played, Told by One Who Knows the Game

Hardball: How Politics Is Played, Told by One Who Knows the Game - Chris Matthews Innovative when it was published, Hardball has become so central to the teachings of political science that its tenets seem to most contemporary readers like givens. Still, it was worth it for all the political anecdotes and illustrations Matthews uses throughout the book. His first-hand experience with the Carter administration and with Speaker Tip O'Neil make for interesting behind the scenes reading.
