It has been the most closely watched and controversial legal proceeding of our time, and Jeffrey Toobin has written the definitive history of what has become the trial of the century. Here is the whole story of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman and their aftermath, as it has never been told – rich in character, driven by the nonstop plot of a legal thriller, and nuanced by the foibles, vanities, and idiosyncrasies of its participants. Featuring a new chapter on the O.J. Simpson civil trial, The Run of His Life – hailed by The Wall Street Journal as “the pick of the litter” – is a breathtakingly paced narrative that will long outlast the daily headlines.

Jeffrey Toobin American Heiress
A National Bestseller
From New Yorker staff writer and bestselling author of The Nine and The Run of His Life: The People v. O. J. Simpson, the definitive account of the kidnapping and trial that defined an insane era in American history
On February 4, 1974, Patty Hearst, a sophomore in college and heiress to the Hearst Family fortune, was kidnapped by a ragtag group of self-styled revolutionaries calling itself the Symbonese Liberation Army. The weird turns that followed in this already sensational take are truly astonishing–the Hearst family tried to secure Patty’s release by feeding the people of Oakland and San Francisco for free; bank security cameras captured “Tania” wielding a machine gun during a roberry; the LAPD engaged in the largest police shoot-out in American history; the first breaking news event was broadcast live on telelvision stations across the country; and then there was Patty’s circuslike trial, filled with theatrical courtroom confrontations and a dramatic last-minute reversal, after which the term “Stockholm syndrome” entered the lexicon.
Ultimately, the saga highlighted a decade in which America seemed to be suffering a collective nervous breakdown. American Heiress portrays the electrifying lunacy of the time and the toxic mic of sex, politics, and violence that swept up Patty Hearst and captivated the nation.

The Oath Jeffrey Toobin
From the prizewinning author of The Nine, a gripping insider’s account of the momentous ideological war between the John Roberts Supreme Court and the Obama administration.
From the moment John Roberts, the chief justice of the United States, blundered through the Oath of Office at Barack Obama’s inauguration, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the White House has been confrontational. Both men are young, brilliant, charismatic, charming, determined to change the course of the nation—and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. One is radical; one essentially conservative. The surprise is that Obama is the conservative—a believer in incremental change, compromise, and pragmatism over ideology. Roberts—and his allies on the Court—seek to overturn decades of precedent: in short, to undo the ultimate victory FDR achieved in the New Deal.
This ideological war will crescendo during the 2011-2012 term, in which several landmark cases are on the Court’s docket—most crucially, a challenge to Obama’s controversial health-care legislation. With four new justices joining the Court in just five years, including Obama’s appointees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, this is a dramatically—and historically—different Supreme Court, playing for the highest of stakes.
No one is better positioned to chronicle this dramatic tale than Jeffrey Toobin, whose prize-winning bestseller The Nine laid bare the inner workings and conflicts of the Court in meticulous and entertaining detail. As the nation prepares to vote for President in 2012, the future of the Supreme Court will also be on the ballot.

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin hammers ‘pathetic’ Democrats in searing rant – here’s why
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin hammered the Democrats on Tuesday for their reticence to fight Republicans for fear that it might excite the base on the right to vote in the midterm elections.
‘They are afraid of everything!’
Toobin was specifically responding to a controversial statement from Hillary Clinton about the tactics that Democrats should take against Republicans.
“Jeffrey Toobin, does she help, Hillary Clinton, or hurt Democratic candidates now four weeks away from the midterm elections?” asked CNN host Wolf Blitzer.
“Well let me just say, in answer, I think Democrats are pathetic!” Toobin responded. “They are afraid of everything!
“It’s like, ‘Oh we can’t have Hillary talk because it will motivate the Republican base,’” he said in a mocking tone. “‘We can’t have Barack Obama talk cuz it’ll motivate their base! We can’t talk about impeachment or it’ll motivate their base!’”
“You know what?” he added, “Hillary Clinton got 3 million votes than the other guy in 2016.”
“I don’t see why she shouldn’t be campaigning around the country,” he concluded. “I don’t see why Barack Obama shouldn’t be campaigning. She is an enormously important figure in American history. She got 60 plus million votes. I don’t see why she shouldn’t speak out like any other famous person.”
“Absolutely not!” fired back former CIA official Phil Mudd. “She needs an extended vacation in the Arctic!”
Watch part of Toobin’s comments below:
Clinton was criticized Tuesday for her comments that civility should not be used with Republicans since they were trying to destroy the values of the Democrats.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”
