390 pages.

Trac­ing inves­tiga­tive leads back through three decades, Secre­cy & Priv­i­lege explores the mys­tery of how the two George Bush­es rose to the pin­na­cle of Amer­i­can polit­i­cal pow­er and what the rise of their dynasty has meant to the nation’s demo­c­ra­t­ic prin­ci­ples.

Author’s com­ment:
The book tries to show how the U.S. got where it is today in terms of its dys­func­tion with infor­ma­tion, with the use of fear, and the incred­i­ble use of dis­hon­esty in the polit­i­cal debates. It shows, going back 30 years to the peri­od of Water­gate, how that has evolved.

THIS BOOK IS IN PRINT.
Avail­able com­mer­cial­ly. Find out more about Robert Par­ry [1].
