The President's Counselor: The Rise to Power of Alberto Gonzales 3 editions

Cover of: The President's Counselor by Bill Minutaglio
About the Book

The first and only biography of the most controversial U.S. Attorney general in recent memoryIn defiance of expectations, statistics, and stereotypes, Alberto Gonzales has risen to become one of the most powerful men in America. Gonzales has been the nexus for key policy points for the Bush administration, and holds inflammatory and very influential positions on issues that seize and polarize the nation — privacy, capital punishment, and torture.Gonzales's unyielding loyalty to George W. Bush — during a time when to call his presidency "controversial" would be an understatement of massive proportions — is a fascinating study in the politics of ambition.From his modest beginnings in Humble, Texas, to his stone-faced refusal to buckle under the pressure of dissenters, The President's Counselor provides never-seen insight into the man whose influence over a very powerful president in very pressing times will undoubtedly impact people here and abroad for years to come.
