9780061373664: War and Decision: Inside the Pentagon at the Dawn of the War on Terrorism

In War and Decision, former Pentagon policy chief Douglas J. Feith puts readers in the room with President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, and others as they considered how to prevent another 9/11. Drawing on thousands of previously undisclosed written sources, Feith offers the first inside view of these events as they unfolded. Through vivid narrative, frank analysis, and elegant writing, his account forever changes our understanding of this challenging era.

About the Author:

Douglas J. Feith served as U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Policy from 2001 to 2005. He is the Director of the Center for National Security Strategies at the Hudson Institute and a Belfer Center Adjunct Visiting Scholar at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. He lives near Washington, D.C., with his family.

From AudioFile:

Douglas Feith, a key member of Donald Rumsfeld's circle, wants a chance to set straight what he believes is the true record of the Bush administration's defense and security policies. His book is a look into how the road to hell (in this case, the Iraq war) is paved with good intentions. As an audiobook, it is often confusing. The overlapping chronologies are difficult to follow, and the countless names of senior bureaucrats and aides add to the challenge of trying to follow the key relationships and decision chains. Narrator Holter Graham brings a strong, clear voice to Feith's memoir and gives the author a pleasant, disarming tone. This audiobook is genuinely fascinating but is not recommended for those who can't identify the Washington backroom players without a program. J.B.B. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
