From provocative ethicist and author Peter Singer..."A chilling exposé of George W. Bush's moral failure on dozens of hot-button issues. More than any president in recent memory, George W. Bush invokes the language of good versus evil and right versus wrong..." What happens when a controversial professor of ethics takes his words seriously?

Peter Singer's many books include Practical Ethics (125,000 copies sold); Animal Liberation, which has sold more than a half million copies and is credited with sparking the animal rights movement; and most recently Pushing Time Away: My Grandfather and the Tragedy of Jewish Vienna. He appears in the print media frequently and has appeared on shows such as The O'Reilly Factor and The Today Show. A professor of bioethics at Princeton University's Center for Human Values, he lives in New York City.
