    A reviewer

    that the current right-wing extremists -- those who falsely claim to be 'conservatives' and 'Libertarians' -- hold Jefferson up as their hero: think Tim McVeigh. Yet a few decades ago, he was dismissed by them as akin to their current equally extreme, and false, notion of 'far left'. So there are many 'facts' about him they assert -- his roles in the framings of Constitution and subsequent Bill of Rights being foremost, as example, when in fact he was an envoy in Paris, France during that period. Lies are more important than truth, so long as it advances the anti-American agenda. Miller can be forgiven a few errors but trying to reclaim Jefferson for the 'left' is a non-starter for the several reasons noted. And because the Founders, and the Framers -- the latter not including Jefferson -- were not caricatures they were complex individuals with a range of impules accross the political spectrum.

    Read this book

    This is a great book, and the tone and manner formulated in it's message could not possibly be more American. It is not easy to speak out against Bush right now and not be dismissed as a 'bleeding heart' or a 'dissident'. Since when has speaking truth about the president been unpatriotic? I'll tell you, since GWB took office. Read it, and tell your friends.

    Not worth buying

    I enjoyed Miller's earlier book on Bush. Cruel and Unusual is no different than the volumes of anti-Bush books on the market today. Miller's arguments are big on flaming rhetoric and weak on substance. His research is compiled from liberal newspaper and magazine articles, and he rarely stops to question the veracity of the articles themselves. I'm no fan of Bush--never was, never will be. But liberals and leftists shouldn't follow the low road of their conservative counterparts and mistake rhetoric for argument. Unfortunately, that's what you'll find in Miller's book. He's repeating what's been said earlier and better. Finally, on a historical note, Miller, who holds Jefferson up as the model for individual liberty, seems to have forgotten Jefferson's role in the Alien and Sedition Acts. This is a glaring omission.
