Absolute Friends is a superbly paced novel spanning fifty-six years, a theatrical masterstroke of tragi-comic writing, and a savage fable of our times, almost of our hours. The friends of the title are Ted Mundy, British soldier’s son born in 1947 in a shining new independent Pakistan, and Sasha, a refugee son of an East German Lutheran pastor and his wife who have sought sanctuary in the West. The two men meet first as students in riot-torn West Berlin of the late Sixties, again in the grimy looking-glass of Cold War espionage and, most terribly, in today’s unipolar world of terror, counter-terror and the war of lies. Absolute Friends presents us with magical writing, characters to delight, and a spellbinding story that enchants even as it challenges.

This book takes a devastating look at the actions and policies of the George W. Bush administration in terms of their impact on women in the United States and abroad. Surprisingly, this is a largely ignored aspect of Bush's presidency, even though his policies have in many ways reversed or inhibited women's progress over the past three decades. While the media have focused on his opposition to abortion, Bush's less-publicized anti-feminist agenda has in fact been much more extensive. He has opposed women's interests in multiple ways, from shutting down women's offices in the government to de-funding programs that assist women, from opposing global women's rights treaties to supporting anti-feminist organizations. Contrary to his public claims that 'W stands for Women,' his policies, appointments and actions reveal a strongly patriarchal bent. This book also includes a chapter on the negative effects on women of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The George W. Bush Presidency: A Rhetorical Perspective, edited by Robert E. Denton, Jr., examines the rhetoric of former president George W. Bush across contexts of domestic policy, foreign policy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and politics in general. The contributors to this volume variously analyze Bush s inaugural and State of the Union addresses, as well as his political philosophy, policy issues, and the rocky relationship with the news media. Collectively, they provide insight into the role of public discourse in the campaigning and governing of the George W. Bush presidency."

In the wake of the 2004 election, pundits were shocked at exit polling that showed that 22% of voters thought 'moral values' was the most important issue at stake. People on both sides of the political divide believed this was the key to victory for George W. Bush, who professes a deep and abiding faith in God. While some fervent Bush supporters see him as a man chosen by God for the White House, opponents see his overt commitment to Christianity as a dangerous and unprecedented bridging of the gap between church and state. In fact, Gary Scott Smith shows, none of this is new. Religion has been a major part of the presidency since George Washington's first inaugural address. Despite the mounting interest in the role of religion in American public life, we actually know remarkably little about the faith of our presidents. Was Thomas Jefferson an atheist, as his political opponents charged? What role did Lincoln's religious views play in his handling of slavery and the Civil War? How did born-again Southern Baptist Jimmy Carter lose the support of many evangelicals? Was George W. Bush, as his critics often claimed, a captive of the religious right? In this fascinating book, Smith answers these questions and many more. He takes a sweeping look at the role religion has played in presidential politics and policies. Drawing on extensive archival research, Smith paints compelling portraits of the religious lives and presidencies of eleven chief executives for whom religion was particularly important. Faith and the Presidency meticulously examines what each of its subjects believed and how those beliefs shaped their presidencies and, in turn, the course of our history.

No recent President has so divided the nation in his first term as has George W. Bush. Billing himself as a "Uniter," Mr. Bush has skirted Congress, played loose with the Constitution and made decisions that harm most of the people, while enriching the elite and corporations. He chose military hawks for Vice President and many cabinet posts. President Bush led the unsubstantiated charge to war on a nation that bore no blame for the destruction of the Trade Towers. He led gross exaggerations about the threat of Iraq to the US, depicting mushroom clouds and chemical weapons delivery capability. He squandered our ability to pursue Al Qaeda in order to remove Saddam Hussein, instead. President Bush has made the world a more dangerous place. He sacrificed the credibility and trust that most nations held toward the United States before his pre-emptive war on Iraq. Questions raised in this book: * Why, when the UN wanted Iraqi oil to help pay for the reconstruction of Iraq, did President Bush insist that US taxpayers pay the whole bill instead? * Why did President Bush protect US oil companies from any fault forever in their handling of Iraqi oil, just two months into the war? (Executive Order 13303, signed May 22, 2003) * Did the 9/11 Commission address the exodus of Saudis from the US three days after the destruction of the Trade Towers, when US air space was shut down to all other flights? * Should Energy planning under Cheney be kept secret from the American people who are affected by his decisions and pay his salary? Is there cronyism when he earns $36 million in 2000 from Halliburton, then as VP helps it win contracts worth billions? * Why do we strengthen bases for 130,000 US troops in Iraq for years to come when we said we weren't going to be occupiers? * Are we supposed to feel safer now with the whole Muslim world angry at us for wrecking and then occupying an Arab country?
