Abstract:

"More than any president in recent memory, George W. Bush invokes the language of good versus evil and right versus wrong. What happens when a controversial professor of ethics takes his words seriously? Peter Singer, who has dedicated his career to the study and implementation of genuinely ethical policies, has put his spotlight on Bush's claims to be a president who knows what is good and what is evil. The results are required reading for everyone who wishes to have an informed opinion on the ethics of George W. Bush's presidency." "Examining widely publicized pronouncements that have rarely been subjected to ethical analysis, on topics ranging from stem-cell research and tax cuts to Iraq and the drive for American preeminence, The President of Good & Evil reveals the president's pattern of ethical confusion and self-contradiction. Delivering his charges in accessible, logical, and lively chapters, Singer asks whether Bush himself has lived up to the all-American values so often touted in current presidential prose."--BOOK JACKET.
