America's Gilded Capital
Mark Leibovich covers Washington, D.C., as chief national correspondent
for The New York Times Magazine. In his new book, This Town, he writes
about the city’s bipartisan lust for power, cash and notoriety. It’s the
story of how Washington became an occupied city; its hold on reality
distorted by greed and ambition. Leibovich pulls no punches, names
names, and reveals the movers, the shakers and the lucrative deals they
make — all in the name of crony capitalism.
