Holy War, Plutocracy, and the New Absolutism in the Bush Presidency

Love him or hate him, George W. Bush aroused the passions.  During his presidency I kept an ongoing website on the Bush administration.  I also wrote several articles on Bushs foreign policy.  Now I am working on what I hope will become a web book on the Bush years.  At this point I have only rough notes, but over time I hope they will become full-fledged chapters.
