Contending that Dick Cheney is the actual decision maker who is running today's government, a critical analysis draws on interviews with such figures as Nelson Mandela and Gore Vidal and identifies the vice president's role in setting energy policy, furthering the war in Iraq, and promoting corporate and religious interests. 40,000 first printing.

Perseus Publishing

Here is the definitive portrait of the ultimate power broker by “the toughest, most in-your-face investigative reporter in the U.S.A.” (Greg Palast). Dick Cheney sets energy policy. He guided the nation into war with Iraq. And, working closely with Karl Rove, he oversees the political infrastructure that allows corporate interests and the religious right to control lawmaking, regulation, the selection of judges, and the development of foreign policy. As John Dean put it, “This page-turner closes the case: Cheney is our de facto president.”

With an emboldened administration that has turned a thin victory into a renewed mandate—rewarding ideologues and purging dissenters—John Nichols’s question is more urgent than ever: can this nation survive four more years of Dick Cheney?

The Rise and Rise of Richard B. Cheney draws on groundbreaking reporting—including exclusive interviews with Cheney’s college professors, Nelson Mandela, Gore Vidal, and political insiders.

I find this book to be a very interesting read. It's a thorough analysis and provocative expose' of the real leader who was, in public, behind yet the real power broker of the presidency of the U.S. The wording is concise, although the cholonogy is somewhat confusing at times but the facts appear well researched.
