Praise

“Persuasive…elegantly argued.”
-Walter Isaacson, The New York Times Book Review

“A powerful-and sobering-account of the step-by-step creation of government structures, unaccountable to Congress or the people, to conduct ‘permanent war in peace.””
The Boston Globe

Bomb Power is pungent, confident, fluid, steeped in learning.”
Vanity Fair

“Written in Wills’ characteristically accessible style, Bomb Power is a well-argued denunciation of our constitutional gatekeepers that is as sad and fascinating as an account of the decline of the Roman republic. … [Wills’s] credentials as a historian are impeccable. His breadth of knowledge is awe inspiring, but he never goes over the reader’s head: He is a scholar with the heart of a journalist.”
The Miami Herald

“Deeply thought-provoking… A prolific author of astonishing range, Wills…offers a forceful indictment of the 43rd president, and even more of his vice president, Dick Cheney.”
The San Francisco Chronicle

“Thought-provoking…compelling.”
The Los Angeles Times

“As usual with Wills, provocatively argued and elegantly written.”
Kirkus
