Prescott Bush is the only person in U.S. history to be father of a U.S.President, grandfather of a U.S. President, and grandfather of a state governor.Duty, Honor, Country is more than a biography of the U.S. Senator fromConnecticut, although it is that. It looks at the principles that Prescott Bushpassed on like family heirlooms to his five children, including George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States: discipline, duty, ethics,commitment, courage, honor, honesty, loyalty, and responsibility. And it looksat the ways the Bush family legacy has made Prescott Bush, former President

George Bush, George W. Bush, and Jeb Bush give themselves to public service."My father believed in the concept of noblesse oblige," said former President George Bush. "You made your money and you had a duty to serve thecommunity or your country."Written with the encouragement and enthusiasm of former President Bush, thebook is a readable story of noblesse oblige in action, from the timePrescott Bush served in town government in Greenwich, Connecticut, to his careeras a U.S. Senator from Connecticut, to his role in passing far-reachinglegislation in the Eisenhower years. It also deals honestly with Prescott Bush's alleged business relationships with Nazi industrialists and other accusations. Half of the book also shows how the commitment to public service was lived outin the lives of Prescott's children and grandchildren, focusing on his sonGeorge H.W. Bush and his grandsons George W. Bush and Jeb Bush."While there is a natural American enchantment with history asnostalgia," says the author, both Georges and Jeb resist - even detest -the words dynasty and legacy. 'Dynasty means something inherited,'said President George W. 'We inherited a good name, but you don't inherit avote.'"
