Non-Fiction Political

A year after a vice presidential campaign that remains as consequential as it was controversial, Sarah Palin is still the most dynamic yet polarizing Republican in America. Now Scott Conroy and Shushannah Walshe draw on their experiences as embedded reporters on Palinís campaign, exclusive on-scene coverage of Palinís post-election struggles in Alaska, and revealing interviews with former McCain/Palin staffers, top political minds, and Palinís family, friends, and foes in Alaska to tell the remarkable behind-the-scenes story of her improbable riseóand its complicated aftermath. The result is a fair and fascinating portrait of Sarah Palin and of the American political process.

Sarah from Alaska illuminates both the talents that helped make Palin a superstar and the traits that became liabilities under the intense pressures of a divisive national campaign. It reveals in riveting detail how Palinís vice presidential campaign became as dysfunctional as it was secretive, explores the circumstances behind her triumphs and baffling missteps, and provides new context for understanding her values, her political successes in Alaska, and her abrupt resignation from the governorship.

ďItís easy to turn Sarah Palin into a caricature of either a heroic everywoman or ridiculous dolt,Ē the authors say, ďbut the truth is that she is more complex than either her most passionate defenders or harshest critics give her credit for.Ē Palin remains ambitious and enormously popular among social conservatives, and her future will be intrinsically interwoven with that of the Republican Party as it struggles to redefine itself and recapture the necessary margin for national political victory in the next decade. That makes Sarah from Alaska essential reading for anyone interested in American politics.
