The Chief Washington Correspondent for The New York Times examines the effect the Bush Administration s foreign and domestic policies will have on global politics.
This trenchant analysis of the Bush Administration s legacy is a riveting, behind-the-scenes account of the foreign policy decisions that have come out of the White House in the last eight years. Detailing the administration s few successes and its stunning string of failures, this audiobook maps the world America faces after the Bush presidency. A veteran reporter with unprecedented access to Bush Administration officials, David E. Sanger provides keen insight to the complex challenges facing the next president, from rebuilding Afghanistan to preventing Iran and North Korea from becoming nuclear-armed states.

David Sanger is at home in the corridors of power, whether in Washington, D.C. (where he has been covering the White House for The New York Times throughout the Bush presidency) or in the military compounds housing Pakistan's generals. His reportage focuses on interviewing world leaders and their aides in paneled offices and underground situation rooms, rather than the man (or woman) on the street or the terrorists and secret operatives in the back alleys. Through his interviews with top officials, who defend and justify or disavow and repudiate policies in which they had been involved, Sanger has produced one of the most comprehensive -- and harrowing -- accounts of American foreign policy ever written.
