The Last Card: A Book Release Symposium


Southern Methodist University - Umphrey Lee Center

Join leading scholars in the field of international security as they give their perspectives on how George W. Bush came to double-down on Iraq in the highest stakes gamble of his entire presidency. Drawing on extensive interviews with nearly thirty senior officials, including President Bush himself, The Last Card offers an unprecedented look into the process by which Bush overruled much of the military leadership and many of his trusted advisors, and authorized the deployment of roughly 30,000 additional troops to the war zone in a bid to save Iraq from collapse in 2007.
