Críticas:

"A powerful, brilliantly researched and deeply unsettling book....extraordinary and invaluable" --Alan Brinkley, "New York Times Book Review
"
"If you intend to vote in November and read only one book between now and then, this should be it." --"Los Angeles Times
""Some of "The Dark Side" seems right out of "The Final Days," minus Nixon's operatic boozing and weeping.... Nixon parallels take us only so far, however. "The Dark Side" is scarier than "The Final Days" because these final days aren't over yet and because the stakes are much higher." --Frank Rich, "New York Times
""In "The Dark Side," Jane Mayer, a staff writer for the New Yorker, documents some of the ugliest allegations of wrongdoing charged against the Bush administration. To dismiss these as wild, anti-American ravings will not do. They are facts, which Mayer substantiates in persuasive detail, citing the testimony not of noted liberals like Noam Chomsky or Keith Olbermann but of military officers, intelligence professionals, "hard-line law-and-order stalwarts in the criminal justice system" and impeccably conservative Bush appointees who resisted the conspiracy from within the administration."
--"Washington Post Book World
"""Whatever it takes to get those bastards." The true nature of our Faustian bargain would not become clear until later, and maybe it needed a journalist as steely and tenacious as Jane Mayer to give us the full picture. "The Dark Side" is about how the war on terror became "a war on American ideals," and Mayer gives this story all the weight and sorrow it deserves. Many books get tagged with the word "essential"; hers actually is."
--"Salon.com "
"
""In Jane Mayer'sangry and important book The Dark Side, '' the tenacious New Yorker reporter takes us, step by step, through the process by which practices and methods we associate with tyrannies became official U.S. policy." --"Bloomberg
""(In) "The Dark Side," Jane Mayer's riveting and shocking new book, and not the least of the themes to emerge from it is that we've witnessed something new in American history: the imperial vice presidency." --"New York Observer
"
"Essential reading for those who think they can stand the truth." -- Bob Herbert, "New York Times
"
"Like a good suspense novel....potent and disturbing stuff." -- "San Diego Tribune"

Reseña del editor:

The Dark Side is a dramatic, riveting, and definitive narrative account of how the United States made self-destructive decisions in the pursuit of terrorists around the world--decisions that not only violated the Constitution, but also hampered the pursuit of Al Qaeda. In spellbinding detail, Jane Mayer relates the impact of these decisions by which key players, namely Vice President Dick Cheney and his powerful, secretive adviser David Addington, exploited September 11 to further a long held agenda to enhance presidential powers to a degree never known in U.S. history, and obliterate Constitutional protections that define the very essence of the American experiment. With a new afterward.
