5.0 out of 5 stars Revealing!, 3 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Rise of the Vulcans: The History of Bush's War Cabinet (Hardcover)
This book provides a great insight into the inner circle of President G W Bush's war cabinet, or the Vulcan's as they came to be known. It traces each member of the Vulcan's careers, highlighting people and events which shaped their ways of thinking and of their subsequent views and outlook on foreign policy in it's direction and implementation. After reading this book it was no longer possible to view key players such as Rumsfeld or Wolfowitz as the caricatures that they have been portrayed as by tv and print media. Rather things become to be seen in different shades of grey and not just black and white.

One important thing to point out to readers is that this books focus is specifically upon the 'principles' within Bush's foreign policy circle and NOT upon President Bush himself. If you are after something specific about President Bush then look elsewhere such as 'Bush at War' by Bob Woodward to name but one.

Rise of the Vulcan's is a great place to start for those interested in the cast of characters within the Bush Administration. It's most important asset is that it shows in detail the relationships between those who are known as the Vulcan's. An excellent work whatever your view on the current US administration may be. Five stars all the way!
