    Incredibly well-referenced guide to the Bush Regime

    This book is not just a diatribe against the Bush regime, of which there are so many now...it is a sort of 'reference' with scores of footnotes and bibliographic info to back up its statements. And the sources aren't not just other anti-Bushers, but include sources like the DOE, EPA, and experts in a variety of fields. In short, this is the kind of book that activists and journalists will love - every statement is backed up with a source, so the facts can be cited without fear of making 'groundless accusations.' In an election year, that is esp. important. A must read!!!
