Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72

Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72

Hunter Thompson’s focus on detail brings 1972 right back into the crosshairs. George McGovern & George Wallace lined up facing Dick Nixon & Ed Muskie on a line of scrimmage defined by discontent and lack of trust in politicians. The fun, gonzo style is there too, but it is not the main event. Hunter’s insights into national politics are as valuable today as they were in 1972.
