Victor Gold wants his party back.

Gold is the former press aide to Barry Goldwater and the former speechwriter and senior advisor for George H. W. Bush. He is incensed that the Neo-Cons and the Evangelical Right have betrayed the ideals of the conservative cause. Now he's fighting back.

A Republican insider for 40 years, Gold is ready to tell all about the war being waged for the GOP's soul, the elder Bush's opinion of his son'spresidency, the significance of the Democratic resurgence, and how Goldwater would have reacted to it all.

Among Gold's explosive disclosures is the truth about Cheney's manipulation of George W., and the chilling, puppet-like role of the President amongst Neo- and Theo-Conservatives.

"Entertaining, provocative . . . Mr. Gold is on to something."
-The Washington Times

"For those disillusioned with the state of the GOP, thisquick, uncompromising polemic provides substantial support, along with a large dose of cold comfort."
-Publishers Weekly

"Like his political mentor Barry Goldwater, Gold pulls no verbal punches in telling the story of how the Bush-Cheney White House has made a mockery of the conservative values it claims to uphold."
-Frank Mankiewicz, former press secretary to Robert Kennedy and George McGovern's campaign manager

"Victor Gold unleashes a bitter yet comic blend of ferocity and ridicule at the neo-conservatives and theocrats who have taken over his party."
-Jules Witcover

Victor Gold was a speechwriter for Bush Sr. and was a prominent Goldwater disciple. He is a personal friend of the Bush family and many other prominent politicians. His previous books include Looking Forward, the autobiography of George H. W. Bush, and a satirical fiction, The Body Politic, coauthored with Lynne Cheney. He is national correspondent for Washingtonian magazine.
