Inside the Bold and Controversial Presidency of George W. BusheBook - 2006
Veteran political reporter Barnes provides an insider's view of how Bush's unique presidential style and bold reforms are dramatically remaking the country--and, indeed, the world. In the process, Barnes shows, the president is shaking up Washington and reshaping the conservative movement. Barnes has gained extraordinary access to the Bush administration, conducting rare one-on-one interviews with Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld, and many other close presidential advisers. Barnes shows how Bush acts as an "insurgent force" in the nation's capital; how he is redefining conservatism for a new era; how he has revolutionized American foreign policy--and how his crusade for democracy would have been anathema to Bush himself only five years ago; when and why he decided to go into Iraq, even knowing that he was putting his future at risk; how he routinely defies conventional wisdom--and why he usually wins.--From publisher description.
