ATLANTA, GA, November 29, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This December, Dick Cheney, is back. "Dick Cheney is, without question, the most powerful vice president in the history of our country," says author and national security expert Charles Denyer, who has just announced the upcoming publication of his newest book, Our Nation's No. 2 — The Rising Influence of America's Modern Vice Presidency. Director Adam McKay (Academy Award Winning Co-Writer and Director of The Big Short), agrees.
Mckay's already Oscar buzz-worthy film VICE with Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell, releases Christmas Day, closely following Denyer's book. The film tells the story of Dick Cheney, the most powerful Vice President in history, and how his policies changed the world as we know it.
"Cheney's knowledge of the political landscape is almost unprecedented in modern American politics, and he used this to his advantage in spearheading critical policy directives for the Bush White House when it came to national security, the war on terror, energy, and much more," said Denyer, a vice presidency expert.
Currently, Denyer is working with former Vice President Dick Cheney on a comprehensive biography of his entire life, with a special emphasis on his extraordinary political career spanning almost five decades.
But Denyer points out that Cheney was not the only power player when it comes to those who've served as our nation's second-in-command. The groundbreaking publication, Our Nation's No. 2, The Rising Influence of America's Modern Vice Presidency, also chronicles how the American vice presidency has risen in influence – as well as power – over the last forty years from Walter Mondale to Mike Pence.
"Charles Denyer has described the evolving status - ranging over time from ignored laughingstock to influential advisor - of the American vice president. He describes how Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale charted a new role for the vice presidency, and tells how their insightful, progressive concept was adopted by their successors. Denyer's book is a pleasure to read as well as a valuable resource to help us all appreciate how a major change in US government was achieved by mere agreement, not by constitutional amendment or act of law, "explains Chase Untermeyer, Executive Assistant to Vice President George H.W. Bush.
Due out this holiday season, Our Nation's No. 2, The Rising Influence of America's Modern Vice Presidency is now available for pre-order at amazon.com. Denyer is available for expert interviews on Dick Cheney, the American Vice Presidency and more.
