Overview

Absolute Despotism is a controversial look at the history of the power elite in and around the George W. Bush administration that extends back over three decades. Much of this information has been dismissed as "conspiracy theory" or "partisan rhetoric." However, using the words of the most powerful people in the government, found in declassified documents, memos they have written, reports they have commissioned, and speeches they have given, Cooper challenges this conventional wisdom in an attempt to preserve the historical record in a time of disinformation and propaganda. Absolute Despotism does more than document "what" the Bush administration has done and answers the "why." It is a case study of one of the most anti-democratic presidencies in history and will transcend the term of the forty-third president by providing the tools to recognize those who share the same ideology and worldview, and who will undoubtedly follow in the future.
