About the Book

Amy Johnson's book Dossier: Blair-Bush-Benazir -Virgil's Contemporary Aeneid, is not a conventional biography in verse, detailing every significant event during the Iraq War and about the lives of Blair, Bush and Benazir.  Amy Johnson's book is inspired by the classic works of Virgil's Aeneid (70 -19 B.C) which not unlike our contemporary War Leaders, describes their legendary journey and the origin of Peace gained after the end of the war on terror. The story of three distinctive Leaders and a poet's picture of the world where human affairs are controlled by human and superhuman influences is beautifully portrayed by Amy Johnson. Virgil's love of his Noble land and the sense of Rome's destiny as a civilized ruler of the nations is not dissimilar to the notion that the rule of law and democratisation of countries led by the Americas, would lead to a more cohesive, globalised and democratic world.  The chapters are from the classic Aeneid works and depict for Blair the "Arms and the Man" - TheTrojans reach Carthage; for Bush, the"fall of Iraq as destined by the gods" - The Sack of Troy; and finally, "I am Aeneas the true" - The Sight of Future Rome; the entry of Benazir Bhutto into the fray of world war politics, after a lengthy period of exile and her subsequent assasination, are all captured in poetry prose.
