stolen from the New York Review of Books

I stumbled across the following list.
It seemed like a pretty good reference guide for, to-the-point, books regarding the Cheney/Bush Administration & Neocon thinking & recent history.
It was copied from The New York Review of Books, volume 53.

The titles are linked to reviews or descriptions of the books.
Authors names are linked to biographical information.


thank you nybooks.
