George W Bush has not been able to escape the spectres of his past, abuse of privilege, draft-dodging Vietnam and a cocaine habit. Fortunate Son researches these allegations, and comes up with 400 pages of startling information: the Bushs' anti-Semitism, their connection to the BCCI scandal, Bush's SEC invesigation for insider trading, and the cronyism practiced with business associates while Governor of Texas. The picture of the personable, charismatic Bush is balanced with the record of his mercenary politics.
