Overview

Ambushed! recounts the exploits of the Bush administration, at home and abroad, 2001 to 2008, through the lens of a Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist for the Miami Herald and the analysis of a leading political scientist at Boston University and Harvard University. The book begins with the ways in which American voters were ambushed in two presidential elections and ranges widely among the ensuing disasters from Enron to Katrina to the budget deficit to the economy and finally to the “global war on terror” that lost America many friends and inspired enemies worldwide. Contrasting the Bush administration’s lofty promises with its policy failures—from Baghdad to New Orleans—the book suggests that this has been not only the least effective but the most destructive presidency of the past century.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Jim Morin has a clear idea how he feels about issues and he wants you to know about it. He then expresses himself clearly and concisely in a manner that is both exciting and explorative. He has all the attributes of a first-rate cartoonist including a fine design and drafting sense and a cunning eye for the unusual.”
