Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The presidency of George W. Bush will be one of the most important in history. Momentous challenges are leading to momentous changes in policy and political practice. Editor Greenstein (Princeton Univ.; The Hidden-Hand Presidency), one of the nation's most respected and accomplished scholars of the presidency, organized a conference on the Bush presidency at Princeton in April 2003, assembling some of the nation's top scholars in political science. Scholarly papers from that conference make up the core of this fine book, which covers a wide range of issues, from the president's leadership style to budget problems to Bush's legislative strategy and foreign policy. The result is fair, balanced, serious, and insightful. Perhaps the most important contribution is a chapter by Ivo H. Daalder and James M. Lindsay (both of the Brookings Institution) on Bush's foreign policy revolution. Arguing that the president is engaged in too high a degree of unilateralism, the authors conclude by admitting that "the long-term consequences of the Bush administration's arrogance in exercising American power remain to be determined." As a presidential election year approaches, this book is an excellent overview of the problems, challenges, and possibilities facing both the Bush administration and the nation.-Michael A. Genovese Loyola Marymount Univ., Los Angeles Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
