Summary
Onetime Republican strategist Phillips reveals how four generations of Bushes have ascended the ladder of national power since WWI, becoming entrenched within the American establishment-Yale, Wall Street, the Senate, the CIA, the vice presidency, and the presidency-through a recurrent flair for old-boy networking, national security involvement, and political deception. Phillips comes to a stunning conclusion: The Bush family has systematically used its financial and social empire; its "aristocracy", to gain the White House, thereby subverting the very core of American democracy. The Bushes reinvented themselves with brilliant timing, twisting and turning from silver spoon Yankees to born-again evangelical Texans.
