Family of Secrets — The Bush Dynasty — Russ Baker

Gore Vidal called Baker’s book about the Bush Dynasty and America’s invisible government one of the most important books of the past ten years. In Family of Secrets Baker asks the obvious, but unanswered question, how can “such a clan occupy the presidency or vice presidency of the US for 20 of the past 28 years” with yet another Bush, Jeb Bush waiting in the wings. Family of Secrets reads and was conceived as a detective story, based on more than 500 interviews and thousands of documents, backed up by more than a 1000 footnotes. And even though the book uncovers a secret political life for all Bushes it is much more than a family expose.

In this interview Russ Baker describes the powers behind the scenes, with examples from the CIA, oil and banking, and how these institutions are created by, and make use of people like the Bush family.

Russ Baker is an investigative journalist and has written for The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, The Nation, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and served as a contributing editor to the Columbia Journalism Review. From A TUC Radio Presentation.
