Citizen Newt

Amidst a 2012 presidential run and backchatter about personal failings comes the authorized biography of Newt Gingrich.

In one way or another Newt Gingrich has been trying to lead a revolution for most of his life, and Citizen Newt is the story of that struggle. With the full cooperation of Speaker Gingrich and the individuals around him, Craig Shirley will cover the life and times, thoughts and musings, successes and failures of Newton Leroy Gingrich-undoubtedly one of the most interesting, influential, and durable political figures of recent decades.

Citizen Newt will cover the span of Gingrich’s life, from his childhood in Pennsylvania to his time as a young Georgian college professor; from his role in the Reagan Revolution to the battles with George H.W. Bush, from 1994’s “Gingrich Revolution” to being cast into the wilderness, and finally to his resurgence as one of the most important conservative leaders and thinkers of the 21st century.

Like Shirley’s previous books, Reagan’s Revolution and Rendezvous with DestinyCitizen Newt will contain fascinating, humorous, humanizing, and heretofore untold stories from its subject’s life and those around him-Gingrich’s political allies and opponents, Washington operators and operatives, Capitol Hill staffers, friends and colleagues.
