The landmark exposé of the most powerful and secretive vice president in American history

Barton Gellman shared the Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for a keen-edged reckoning with Dick Cheney's domestic agenda in The Washington Post . In Angler , Gellman goes far beyond that series to take on the full scope of Cheney's work and its consequences, including his hidden role in the Bush administration's most fateful choices in war: shifting focus from al Qaeda to Iraq, unleashing the National Security Agency to spy at home, and promoting ?cruel and inhumane? methods of interrogation. Packed with fresh insights and untold stories, Gellman parts the curtains of secrecy to show how the vice president operated and what he wrought.

For those who have despaired at the current Administration, this fascinating book confirms that the vice president was behind much of it, perhaps more so than suspected. Gellman writes clearly and with authority. And the timing of the book's release could not be better. Your anger is assuaged by the fact that January 20 is coming soon.
