From the Inside Flap
With this jibe, President Obama acknowledged the extraordinary influence of Richard Cheney.
Armed with deep experience at the highest levels of government, Cheney confronted the threats facing America after 9/11 and emerged as the most powerful vice president in U.S. history and the most controversial political figure of our time.
In Cheney One on One, the man at the center of four decades of political upheavalfrom Watergate to Iraqtakes stock of his life and legacy with unprecedented candor. In December 2014, Cheney sat down with James Rosen, chief Washington correspondent for Fox News, for three days of oral history interviews. No subject was off limits. The result is the most penetrating and detailed interrogation of Cheney ever conducted, an inside account of his extraordinary life and times.
Informed by his own reporting and the vast literature of the Bush-Cheney era, Rosen steers the conversation to the most sensitive subjects, some never addressed before:
How Cheney went from Yale dropout to White House chief of staff by his mid-thirties
The tense hours after 9/11, when Cheney ran the government from a White House bunker
Cheney’s role in shaping intelligence, sur- veillance, detention, and interrogation policies
His clashes with Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell
Cheney’s assessment of the mistakes he and President Bush made in Iraq
His views on life, death, and Godand much more
Rich and probing, highly readable yet supremely illuminating, Cheney One on One rescues a seminal figure from his Darth Vader” caricature and confirms James Rosen’s reputation as one of the leading journalists of our time.
