This highly critical examination, and judgment, of the present Administration’s conduct of the “War on Terror” is performed effortlessly by George Guidall. He reads with a clear, resonant voice of events, meetings, and conversations as reported by sources both anonymous and open. Rarely giving the faintest attempt at affecting a voice in dialogue, he ably expresses the tone and emotion of such conversations. In the narrative passages, his pacing and emphasis are nearly flawless. Suskind seems to find nothing positive in the Bush Administration’s conduct. His conclusion is a seeming nostalgia for the conduct of the Cold War, forgetting how politicized conduct of that struggle often was. M.T.F.
