Fred Barnes Rebel In Chief
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.
