9780297847779: A Planet for the President: A Novel

Things are not going well for the President of the United States. He wants Americans to be adored by freedom-loving people everywhere. Instead, half the planet seems to be in permanent insurrection against US power. What's more, there's a growing environmental crisis that even he can't ignore. At a secret meeting in the Oval Office, the President is persuaded of one simple fact—there are too many people in the world. Only radical action, his advisers say, can deal with the problem. The solution they propose is frighteningly audacious and breathtakingly ruthless. Soon, the President has embarked upon a plan that will guarantee American supremacy for generations to come—or so he believes.

Review:

"If you're getting depressed about the political huckstering on the other side of the Atlantic, you would be well advised to get yourself a copy of A Planet for the President. It won't make you less scared but at least you'll be giggling as you quake." TIME OUT 'This book is a timely and bold warning of what can happen when someone with poers begins to think the unthinkable.' EXPRESS 'Here is combined a mix of Tom Sharpe's burlesque and the didactic thrust of Ben Elton.' -- Simon Parke CHURCH TIMES
