In "Playing President," Robert Scheer offers an unparalleled insight into the presidential mind. He analyses each administration since Nixon, and including George W. Bush, offering insights that will surprise the reader--particularly those with rigid preconceptions about the decision-making processes of our leaders. The volume will also include reprints of Scheer's famous presidential interviews, along with previously unpublished interview transcripts and select previous writings.
Robert Scheer is the author of six books, including "Thinking Tuna Fish," "Talking Death: Essays on the Pornography of Power"; "With Enough Shovels: Reagan, Bush and Nuclear War"; and "America After Nixon: The Age of Multinationals." Along with Christopher Scheer and Lakshmi Chaudhry, he is the coauthor of "The Five Biggest Lies Bush Told Us About Iraq" (Seven Stories/Akashic). Scheer is currently a clinical professor of communications at the Annenberg School at the University of Southern California. He is a nationally syndicated columnist based at the "Los Angeles Times," a contributing editor at the "Nation," and a host of NPR-affiliate KCRW's "Left, Right, and Center."
