Overview
From the legendary journalist and creator of Gonzo journalism Hunter S. Thompson comes the bestselling critical look at Nixon and McGovern s 1972 presidential election.
Forty years after its original publication, "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72 "remains a cornerstone of American political journalism and one of the bestselling campaign books of all time. Hunter S. Thompson s searing account of the battle for the 1972 presidency from the Democratic primaries to the eventual showdown between George McGovern and Richard Nixon is infused with the characteristic wit, intensity, and emotional engagement that made Thompson the flamboyant apostle and avatar of gonzo journalism ("The New York Times"). Hilarious, terrifying, insightful, and compulsively readable, "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 72 "is an epic political adventure that captures the feel of the American democratic process better than any other book ever written."
