"Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail in '72" is a great read. It should be read alongside "The Great Shark Hunt" to really understand what was happening in the US during 70-75 and where we are Now. Those two books are probably the best explanation of why America had that weird Nixon - Ford interlude, why what later happened to Jimmy Carter, happened to Jimmy Carter, why Reagan descended from California, what orifice squirted out the Bushes, where the Gulf Wars came from and why Clinton and Obama had to happen without it seeming like anything had happened, or even did happen.

They are also incredibly entertaining and funny.

I am genuinely suprised Duke was allowed to live so long.

Haven't read the books but I can say you just provided an excellent summary of the last 45 years of American political history!
