From the host of MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, an important and enthralling new account of the presidential election that changed everything, the race that created American politics as we know it today.

Long before Lawrence O'Donnell was the anchor of his own political talk show, he was a senior adviser to Senator Patrick Maynihan, one of postwar America's wisest political minds. The 1968 U.S. presidential election - marked by RFK's assassination, massive upheaval in the Democratic Party, and the first of Richard Nixon's dirty tricks - was O'Donnell's own political coming of age. In the decades since, the election has remained one of his abiding fascinations, as it set the tone for so much of what followed in American politics, all the way through to today. Playing with Fire represents his master class in American electioneering, as well as an extraordinary human drama that captures a system, and a country, coming apart at the seams.
