Hacks is a no-holds barred look at the 2016 Presidential election from former Democratic National Committee chair and Democratic Party strategist Donna Brazile. Written with both wrenching honesty and her trademark humor, Brazile takes readers inside the Russian hacking of the DNC and the turmoil that engulfed the Democratic Party in the final months of the 2016 campaign. Only by laying bare the missteps, miscalculations, and crimes of 2016, Brazile contends, will Americans be able to salvage their democracy.
Donna Brazile is currently a Joan Shorenstein fellow at The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. She is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University and a contributor to ABC News. A graduate of Louisiana State University, Brazile worked on every presidential campaign from 1976 through 2000, when she served as Al Gore's campaign manager. In 2014, she was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the board of the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. She is the author of Cooking With Grease: Stirring the Pots in American Politics.
