BOOK WORLD, February 20, 2011

By Christopher Schoppa
Best Sellers

As February winds down, the tension and anxiety level in Washington is inching up, thanks to the budget showdown in Congress and the ramping up of the 2012 presidential contest. Already.

That might explain the reappearance of "The Blueprint" by Blackwell & Klukowski, taking the president to task for a perceived abuse of power, which published last April.

Along with the return engagements of books by and about President Reagan comes the expected debut of Donald Rumsfeld's new memoir in the No. 1 spot ... a link to Book World's review can be found below.
