Bill Clinton's own writings and speeches, as well as journal and newspaper articles about him, reflect his consistent long-term interest in key policy issues, such as job growth, economic development, worker training, health care, international trade, and education. This unique volume, providing sources of information on Clinton's earlier career, will facilitate background research on our current president. Covering the period from his first bid for public office in 1974 to the eve of his inauguration, this volume will also facilitate research on his Arkansas political career, his presidential campaign, and the transition period. The work is divided into three major parts. Part one opens with Clinton's own writings and speeches. It then covers his Arkansas political career from 1974 to October 3, 1991, when he announced his candidacy for president. The presidential campaign from October 4, 1991, to November 3, 1992, is covered in Part two, and Part three provides sources on the transition period from November 4, 1992 to the inauguration. Sources are arranged chronologically within sections, and access is enhanced by full author and subject indexes.
