From Barnes & NobleIt's back: the book that the Bush camp successfully stifled when it was first published in 1999. Bush's campaign lawyers went out of their way to personally discredit the author without necessarily denying any of the book's factual details. Now a new publisher, Soft Skull Press, has republished Fortunate Son, its text completely intact (indeed, it has been updated in light of Election 2000!).
Fortunate Son tells the truth about George W. Bush -- his draft-dodging, his less than stellar record at Yale, his largely unsuccessful attempts at "big business" (including an SEC investigation), and much, much more -- thereby reinforcing and amplifying the frustration and dissatisfaction felt by the 50 million people who voted for Al Gore.
Hatfield offers a revealing look at the man who many feel was "selected" president by a fiercely partisan conservative Supreme Court majority. It will be easy for the reader to understand why this book was attacked and slandered even before it was originally published.
