The accidental president : how 413 lawyers, 9 Supreme Court justices, and 5,963,110 (give or take a few) Floridians landed George W. Bush in the White House / David A. Kaplan.

This text offers a comprehensive guide to the legal battles that finally gave George W. Bush the presidency five weeks after election night. The author's approach is deliberately humourous because of the absurdity of the outcome of the election.
