The best, the fastest, the hippest and the most unorthodox account ever published of the US presidential electoral process in all its madness and corruption. In 1972 Hunter S. Thompson, the creator and king of Gonzo journalism, covered the US presidential campaign for Rolling Stone magazine alongside the establishment newsmen of Washington. The result is a classic piece of subversive reportage and a fantastic ride on the rollercoaster of Hunters uniquely savage imagination. In his own words, written years before Watergate: It is Nixon himself who represents that dark, venal and incurably violent side of the American character almost every other country in the world has learned to fear and despise.

The best stuff on the campaign Ive read anywhere. Nicholas Von Hoffman, Washington Post Obscene, horrid, repellent driving, urgent, candid, searing a fascinating, compelling book! New York Post Hunter S. Thompson is the most creatively crazy and vulnerable of the New Journalists. His books are brilliant and honorable and valuable the literary equivalent of Cubism: all rules are broken. Kurt Vonnegut Jr Gaze in awe Hunter Thompson does in his own mad way betray a profound democratic concern for the polity. And in its own mad way, its darned refreshing. New York Times Shocks you into laughter. Detroit Free Press Unnerving! Newsweek
