Product Details


“[A] devastating examination…. That this powerful argument has been made by Kevin Phillips should be a measure of how seriously it should be taken. He is not an idealogue of the left and he is not a conspiracy theorist…. American Dynasty is an important, troubling book that should be read everywhere with care.” —Washington Post

“Kevin Phillips is no hotheaded bomb-thrower but a seasoned wise man with deep roots in the Republican party. American Dynasty is as depressing as it is brilliant and important.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“If Howard Dean (or any other Democrat) is elected president of the United States this year, he (or she) will owe a debt of gratitude to Kevin Phillips.” —New York Times Book Review

“Given this left-liberal publishing phenomenon, where evil Bushies lurk around every civic bend dismantling our constitutional rights, it is with welcome relief that political commentator and one-time GOP strategist Kevin Phillips has stepped into the fray … With great skill, Phillips illuminates how the Bush Dynasty has long used such old-boy organizations as Yale’s Skull and Bones, the CIA, Dillon Read, and most recently the Carlyle Group to further its main objective: political-economic power.” —Mother Jones

“A must-read for anyone skeptical of President Bush and other members of the Texas clan…” —New York Daily News

American Dynasty, written with the passion of a modern-day Tom Paine, recalls all too clearly the Founding Father’s words, little more than 200 years later.” —Seattle Times
