READING: George W. Bush's life is presented in chronological order-from infancy to the beer-soaked floor of a Yale fraternity house, and from blowing off his questionable tenure with the National Guard to blowing off his presidential duties. It reveals long-simmering tensions between George H. W. and Barbara Bush; Condoleezza's unrequited love; Cheney's descent into madness; and much, much more. In 2003 President Bush came to England for a state visit. He seemed to be enjoying being here. He told me that driving on the left side of the road reminded him of his drinking days.- Tony Blair Even before the shooting, things between Bush and Cheney were strained. I recall one morning informing the president that Cheney had been rushed to hospital with chest pains. Without looking up from his Game Boy, President Bush muttered," Wow, there's a shocker"- Karl Rove, Director of Propaganda. During his sate visit to India, we took President Bush to a ceremonial meditation session. When the guru told the president to empty his mind, Andy Card muttered, "He's way ahead of you"- APJ Abdul Kalam, former President of India

READING: George W. Bush was waarschijnlijk de meest omstreden president die Amerika ooit heeft gehad. In de recente geschiedenis misschien wel de meest gehate. Dat was zo in de Verenigde Staten zelf, waar zijn verkiezingswinst in 2000 onmiddellijk werd betwist door zijn Democratische tegenstander Al Gore. En dat was zo in het buitenland, waar zijn reactie op de terroristische aanslagen van 11 september in toenemende mate op onbegrip en woede stuitte, ook bij Amerika's oude bondgenoten. In dit boek geeft 'Bush jr.' zelf zijn visie op de feiten. In zijn memoires vertelt George W. openhartig over zijn jaren in het Witte Huis en de aanloop daarnaar toe. Hij doet dat niet in de vorm van een conventionele autobiografie, maar door stil te staan bij de momenten waarop hij beslissingen nam met verstrekkende gevolgen voor Amerika, en voor de rest van de wereld. Bush voert ons terug naar zijn Salomonsoordelen in het Witte Huis door te laten zien welke informatie hij op die momenten had, welke adviezen hij kreeg en welke principes hij daarin volgde. 'My goal is to bring the reader inside the Oval Office for the most consequential moments of my personal and political life.' Cruciale beslissingen is een glashelder zelfportret van de machtigste man van het afgelopen decennium.

READING: No one is more qualified to give a fully rounded, objective portrait of our forty-first president than Tom Wicker. A political correspondent for The New York Times for more than thirty years, Wicker was a first-hand witness to and reporter of George H. W. Bush’s political rise and presidential reign. In George Herbert Walker Bush, Wicker provides a richly drawn and succinct overview of Bush from his New England roots, his decorated service in World War II, and his successful oil businesses to his shift to politics and rapid rise within the Republican party. As he describes changes within the Republican party in recent decades, Wicker charts Bush’s career, including in-depth analysis of his campaign tactics and his gift for creating friendships and inspiring loyalty which, Wicker argues, has been the key to Bush’s success. The result is a fascinating, timely glimpse into one of the most powerful families in America today, complete with insights into the current reign of George W. Bush, the continued legacy of the Bush family, and contemporary American politics.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: George W. Bush: In the Whirlwind examines the beginning and early years of the Presidency of the 43rd President of the United States. New author Bryan LaBerge provides a mix of political savvy with an outside Washington DC common man perspective. In the Whirlwind explores a broad range of events and political topics that run the span of years from the 2000 Republican primary election through the mid-term elections of 2002. Some think of Bush as not up to the task. Some believe him to be a product of the September 11 attacks. Still others think him an illegitimate President. In the Whirlwind takes these issues head on and answers them from a political outsider's perspective. Unlike many current books about George W. Bush, In the Whirlwind looks at the whole presidency of George W. Bush and not just one defining moment. The book provides the reader a big picture historical viewpoint that will leave them wanting more.

Release Date2010
Genre Political Science
Pages 317
ISBN 9781597976138
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The events of 9/11 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan make an obvious case for expert study of the George W. Bush defense program. During the Bush administration, the rise and fall of governments, the fates of peoples, and the very definitions of "war" and "victory" were up for discussion. The United States, with its unprecedented global military power at the dawn of the twenty-first century, created new opportunities for using foreign policy and military strategy on behalf of national and allied interests. But this power was limited, and its use against unconventional or otherwise unorthodox enemies required careful calibration of its various instruments. In this insightful series of essays edited by Stephen Cimbala, eleven academic experts prominent in the defense and security think-tank communities assess Bush's defense program. Many also have past or current experience in the U.S. government or the American armed forces. They examine Bush's defense policy and strategy across several critical issues, including Iraq, Afghanistan, terrorism, nuclear arms control, and foreign military sales. In addition, special chapters are devoted to the leadership style of former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, to the idea of "victory" as it might apply to Bush's defense decisions, and to the best exit strategy from Iraq for the United States. The lessons learned from the successes and failures in Bush's defense policy, clearly presented in The George W. Bush Defense Program, can also be applied to the appraisal of all presidents.

The Author Bob Woodward
The Publisher Simon and Schuster
Release Date2002-11-21
Genre Political Science
Pages 400
ISBN 0743215389
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: With his unmatched investigative skill, Bob Woodward tells the behind-the-scenes story of how President George W. Bush and his top national security advisers, after the initial shock of the September 11 attacks, led the nation to war. Extensive quotations from the secret deliberations of the National Security Council -- and firsthand revelations of the private thoughts, concerns and fears of the president and his war cabinet -- make Bush at War an unprecedented chronicle of a modern presidency in time of grave crisis. Based on interviews with more than a hundred sources and four hours of exclusive interviews with the president, Bush at War reveals Bush's sweeping, almost grandiose, vision for remaking the world. "I'm not a textbook player, I'm a gut player," the president said. Woodward's virtual wiretap into the White House Situation Room reveals a stunning group portrait of an untested president and his advisers, three of whom might themselves have made it to the presidency. Vice President Dick Cheney, taciturn but hard-line, always pressing for more urgency in Afghanistan and toward Iraq. Secretary of State Colin Powell, the cautious diplomat and loyal soldier, tasked with building an international coalition in an administration prone to unilateralism. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the brainy agitator and media star who led the military through Afghanistan and, he hopes, through Iraq. National security adviser Condoleezza Rice, the ever-present troubleshooter who surprisingly emerges as perhaps the president's most important adviser. Bush at War includes a vivid portrait of CIA director George Tenet, ready and eager for covert action against terrorists in Afghanistan and worldwide. It follows a CIA paramilitary team leader on a covert mission inside Afghanistan to pay off assets and buy friends with millions in U.S. currency carried in giant suitcases. In Bush at War, Bob Woodward once again delivers a reporting tour de force.
