Editorial Reviews

H W. Brands
A fascinating account of a controversial presidency. George W. Bush entered office in the distrustful aftermath of a disputed election, and he left office amid the uncertainty of two unfinished wars and an incipient depression; but in between he managed to accomplish more—for better and worse—than almost anyone had thought possible. Mark Rozell, Gleaves Whitney, and the scholars they have enlisted explain how this happened, and what it still means. Required reading for any serious student of the modern presidency.
David Marion
A timely and provocative set of essays on a subject of both immediate and enduring significance. Taken together, the essays provide a remarkably comprehensive and carefully balanced examination of the historically important presidency of George W. Bush.
