Description: "What is this strange book" asks Fedwa Malti-Douglas, "that can bring the American presidency to its knees?" She reveals how The Start Report exposed the culture tendencies, desires, and taboos of Americans while it disrobed the most powerful man in the world.

What does the report imply about American values when it repeatedly points to the dates on which trysts occurred? Why does gender seem so unstable in the report? And how do such varied objects as Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass or Arthur Koestler's Darkness at Noon or a Hugo Boss tie or Vox, a novel about phone sex, fit into the legal discourse of the report? Fraught with assumptions about gender and sexuality, the report reflects a strategy to use Clinton's "body natural" to undermine his "body politic".
