43 revisited

shrub“Bush” by Jean Edward Smith presents “a shrewd, nuanced” life of our 43rd president.   The author contends that Bush, rather than key advisers Cheney and Rumsfeld, made his own decisions in international relations.  Smith shows how he was guided in his decision making by religious belief, which gave him an unshakable confidence and a way of seeing events in binary terms.  Written in sober, smooth, snark-free prose (Washington Post) this is a  “fair, comprehensive and highly readable account (AP).”
