Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This report by Michigan Representative Conyers, senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, and his staff aims to demonstrate a "persistent and disturbing pattern of conduct involving the Bush Administration" in the buildup to and handling of the Iraq War, as well as the domestic erosion of civil liberties-but comes too late to add much news. The authors draw on "tens of thousands" of sources in building their case, including government reports, legal decisions, newspapers, books, speeches, television broadcasts and online material, tallying just over 1,400 endnotes in a dense but manageable 320 pages. They also comprehensively cover the administration's role in spreading the false claim of an Iraq-al-Qaeda connection, scandals involving the torture of Iraqi prisoners, and the leaking of former CIA-officer Valerie Plame-Wilson's identity to the press. Since the bulk of the report was completed by May 2006, a brief addendum isn't enough to bring some of the material up to date (most tellingly, the text continually refers to the Republican-controlled Congress). Most readers will be better served by the more journalistic books and articles the authors use as references. (June)

    An Indictment of the Bush Adminstration

    At the outset I must state that I am a registered Republican and voted for George II twice. Be that as it may I am reviewing this book. Rep: Conyers is a Michigan Democrat and the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and his book sets forth in often mind numbing detail the various ¿crimes¿ of the Bush administration. This book is obviously well researched, there are 1,401 separate endnotes as well as a through listing of the specific Federal statutes violated and clearly the book reflects his dedication to exposing the shortcomings of the current administration. Unfortunately the book is written like a Congressional report (only logical when you consider the author) and is not an easy read by any means. There is clearly a large audience for a book on this subject and Republican that I am I freely acknowledge the many faults, errors, misrepresentations and outright lies of this administration which should be debated by the public. This book is too detailed and dense to be accessible to the general reading public however. I will note that it will provide excellent source material for anyone who wishes to write a more reader friendly book on this subject.

    True crime exposed!

    It's about time someone had the guts to publish this. Representative John Conyers' report lays out the unconstitutional acts committed by the Bush Administration that are egregious enough to call for impeachment. This book will educate you, anger you, and show you the facts - not the same conspiratorial run-around - about the White House's crimes.
