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.

It's rather left-leaning, partisan bent, but how can one stay objective when discussing such a repulsive creature. Gotta say, I love the fact that this book talks about Lynn Cheney's soft core lesbian novel published in the '70's. I want to read that next! Read full review

“If you doubt that Cheney fits his sarcastic self-description as 'the evil genius in the corner,' [this book] will go leagues toward dispelling it.” -- Pittsburgh City Paper
