The untold story of Dick Cheney: the most powerful yet most unpopular vice president in American history.
Cheney's relentless rise to political prominence over three decades happened almost by stealth. Veteran reporters Lou Dubose and Jake Bernstein reveal the disturbing truth about the man who successfully co-opted executive control over the U.S. government, serving as the de facto 'shadow president' in one of the most controversial White House administrations in memory.
With unique access to numerous first-hand sources, this account provides startling revelations concerning the war on terror, Cheney’s relationship with the CIA and his involvement with Enron. Dubose and Bernstein explore Cheney’s ruthless manouevers and ambitious drive that consistently steered America to the right, an impact that can still be felt in American politics today.
Credited by Vanity Fair as one of the key influences behind Adam McKay’s Oscar-nominated film VICE*,* this utterly gripping exposé chronicles the hijacking of the American presidency and illustrates the arrogance of power as never before.
