More About True Faith and Allegiance by Alberto R. Gonzales
 
 
 
Overview

True Faith and Allegiance is the highly-anticipated personal history from Alberto R. Gonzales, former Attorney General of the United States and former Counsel to the President--the only lawyer and only Hispanic to hold both these positions--an ultimate insider in the most tumultuous events in recent history. Born to a poor but proud working-class family in Humble, Texas, Gonzales was raised along with his seven siblings in a modest 2-bedroom home. His loving and devout parents taught him the conservative values of hard work and accountability that motivated Gonzales to the highest echelons of power. He was a confidante to President George W. Bush during the crucible of the 9/11 attacks, and he played a vital role in the administration's immediate response to protect America and the far-reaching steps to prevent further harm.

For the first time, Gonzales, former United States attorney general and counsel to President George W. Bush, shares his vantage point from within the legal process during pivotal decisions in the post9/11 war on terror. Gonzales goes behind the headlines of many of the news stories that shaped the presidency and required him to provide legal perspective to the president, including the execution of Timothy McVeigh, changes to college admissions based on race, the decision to enter Iraq based on intelligence that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, and authorizing electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens to provide leads on terrorist activity. Many staunch conservatives felt Gonzales was a controversial choice; he was the only person to hold both positions simultaneously, and the first Latino to serve as counsel to the president. Less a biography and more a personal window into the events of history, Gonzaless work reflects dedication to personal principles and a desire to serve his country well during one of the most tumultuous eras in recent history. (Sept.)
