WASHINGTON, Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today is not just Veterans Day. It is the day a most peculiar event unfolds: One former president named George Bush releases his "personal biography" of another president named George Bush—his father.
From the advance notices, we know that this singular two-generation duo plans on telling an inspiring story of a heroic and selfless individual who shaped national and world events.
Could it be that this quintessentially ambitious clan wishes to nudge the Bush brand away from the George Bush of "Mission Accomplished" and "heckuva job, Brownie" by turning our attention to carefully reformulated memories of the "kinder, gentler" George Bush?
According to Russ Baker -- author of the groundbreaking, profoundly unsettling investigative history of both George Bushes, Family of Secrets: the Bush Dynasty, America's Invisible Government and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years -- this is clearly part of a larger effort playing out in the media since the last presidential election.
"The Bushes are not done. A third generation George Bush, George P. Bush, prepares to be inaugurated to statewide office in Texas—and is expected to seek even higher office. But first, there is the second coming of the Bush brother act, as George P.'s father Jeb embarks upon his own presidential run," said Baker.
In five years of research, Baker discovered that much of the conventional narrative advanced in scores of other books has left Americans with a misleadingly indulgent portrait of what is in actuality a hard-edged, calculating and consummately Machiavellian clan. He provides literally hundreds of jaw-dropping revelations that present a new perspective on the events of the Bush years.
The bestseller (Bloomsbury, 2009), was praised by figures such as Gore Vidal, Dan Rather and Bill Moyers. Indeed, Family of Secrets is considered by journalists, scholars and researchers to be the most trenchant inquiry into the roots, methods and purposes of this powerful dynasty.
Family of Secrets has never been more relevant as a map of where we have been—and where, without due diligence, we may find ourselves again.
