In this New York Times bestseller, David Brock, a leading investigative journalist in America, presents an argument of the fact and fiction that made up the Hill-Thomas hearings of 1991.
Presenting a thorough investigation of the evidence in the Thomas-Hill hearings, Brock argues that there was no reason to believe Anita Hill’s accusations of sexual harassment against Clarence Thomas.
“The Real Anita Hill is well written, carefully reasoned, and powerful in its logic. It is must reading for anyone who feels remotely touched by this case. …The questions [Brock] leaves the reader pondering are ancient but vital: how do you keep separate the bad means and the good ends; how do you keep the bad means from rotting the entire system?” – Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
