Bush Tragedy by Jacob Weisberg

Book Description

"The Bush Tragedy" opens up the black box of the plane-crash presidency of George W. Bush to examine the political wreckage. How did a man of such evident flaws and limited abilities find himself in the position of the most powerful man in the world? How and why did half of America fall for Bush before falling out with him? Weisberg analyses Bush through familial, personal, political and historical relationships, and examines how his idolisation of Reagan and his devout Christianity led to widely condemned policy decisions that have fundamentally changed the role and position of the US. "The Bush Tragedy" is a razor-sharp character study of one of the most controversial presidents in American history.
