Karl Rove, the architect of George W. Bush's presidency, recounts his controversial journey through Republican politics and into the White House.
Republican strategist, and one-man brains trust, Karl Rove recounts his life and career in this revealing memoir and behind-the-scenes political tell-all. Rove is generally credited (or damned) for orchestrating the stunning resurgence of the Republican party--first in Texas, and then across the nation--and has too often been called "George Bush's brain." In COURAGE AND CONSEQUENCE, he recounts key events and provides the reasoning behind major decisions--such as the selection of Dick Cheney as a running mate for George W. While Rove takes the opportunity to settle scores with Democrats whom he says played down and dirty behind the scenes while publicly slinging mud at him and accusing him of factionalism, the greater interest here lies in his own explanation of his political philosophy and his forays into personal and family history. While a personal account such as this may not warrant the label "definitive," Rove, nevertheless, writes engagingly and with authority about his decades-long career in public service--and he provides many revelations about power and politics.
