Editorial Reviews

Review

"More than four turbulent decades at the epicenter of political life have made Dick Cheney one of the most consequential political figures in the nation's history. You will see important chapters of that history--including some that are still being writ- ten--differently after savoring this wonderfully conceived volume in which Cheney converses with one of Washington's most seasoned journalists."
--GEORGE F. WILL, author, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, and Fox News commentator

"Invaluable...James Rosen has given us a rare and compelling view of how Dick Cheney sees the world and himself. With searching questions and clear-eyed follow-ups, Rosen served as history's interlocutor in a series of revealing--and inevitably controversial--conversations."
--JON MEACHAM, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and author of Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush

"An essential document of modern America.... With the depth of a historian and the instincts of an investigative reporter, James Rosen adds considerably to our under- standing of Dick Cheney and the administrations in which he served.... Offers crucial context and fresh reporting on many of the most controversial decisions of the Bush- Cheney years.... A must-read."
--STEPHEN F. HAYES, senior writer for the Weekly Standard and author of Cheney: The Untold Story of America's Most Powerful and Controversial Vice President

"Indispensable.... James Rosen has a knack for asking probing, unusual, and some- times uncomfortable questions.... His skill as an interviewer is vividly on display in the hours he spent interrogating Dick Cheney."
--JONATHAN KARL, chief White House correspondent for ABC News

"Fascinating, revelatory, and valuable.... A contribution to our current political dia- logue that will also serve as a basic source for the historians of the future."
--MICHAEL BESCHLOSS, author of Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders and How They Changed America, 1789-1989

"James Rosen skillfully lets Cheney be Cheney, bringing to life a third of a century on the front lines of history."
--I. LEWIS LIBBY, former chief of staff to Vice President Cheney
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

"Dick Cheney says he thinks I'm the worst president of his lifetime—which is interesting, because I think Dick Cheney is the worst president of my lifetime." —Barack Obama

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 upheaval—from Watergate to Iraq—takes 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 God—and 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.
