Abstract:

George W. Bush may hold the title of Commander-in-Chief, but real power is in the hands of Richard Bruce Cheney, a remarkably unexamined and--as this book reveals--extremist politician. Dick Cheney staffed the White House, sets energy policy, guided the nation into war with Iraq, and, working closely with Karl Rove, oversees the political infrastructure that allows corporate interests and the religious right to control lawmaking, regulation, and the selection of judges. Here is the first biography of the most powerful vice president in American history.--From publisher description.
