Publisher's Summary

In this revealing biography of the elder George Bush, Tom Wicker, a political correspondent for The New York Times for more than 30 years, draws a sympathetic and insightful portrait of the man at the helm of one of the most powerful families today. From his New England roots and his decorated service in World War II to his oil business and transition to politics, Bush has had the fortunate gift for creating friendships and inspiring loyalty; this, as Wicker makes the case, was the key to his success. While charting Bush's career and providing in-depth analysis of his campaign tactics, Wicker also offers a glimpse into the workings of the current administration and the continued legacy of the Bush family.
