Read in February, 2004

A multi-generational look at the Bush family, as well as some others, their roles in important events in American history and how the present is merely the continuation of the past. There are many compelling points made here, not least of which is that the Bush tax policies are cementing in place an American aristocracy. He also shows that the current methodology of lies and obfuscation is one with past practices in the family. Very compelling stuff. But I did find the laundry list methodology used in recounting historical family connection with the rulers of America very sleep-inducing. Still, well, well worth the effort.
