Overview

Author Roman Popadiuk served in the Bush White House from 1989 to 1992 as deputy assistant to the president and deputy press secretary for foreign affairs. In that capacity, he was closely involved with many of the day-to-day decisions of the administration during a momentous period that saw the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, the rise of a new global coalition, the curbing of a dictator’s expansionist policies in the Middle East, and shifting domestic, economic, and political currents. 
 In this important volume, Popadiuk examines the ways in which the personal leadership style of George Bush influenced the formation and execution of policy. Popadiuk composes a mosaic of events, quotations, and observations that yield a broad view of the ways in which a president’s personal qualities and philosophies impinge upon leadership options. 
 General readers and public service professionals will find The Leadership of George Bush informative and enlightening, and scholars of the presidency and public policy will discover new avenues for research on both the Bush administration and executive leadership and policy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Those who judge a president by his elections must stand aside for those who judge a president by his solutions to crisis (the Cold War) and new directions for the country (civil rights for the disabled). It’s all here, in a warmly human and readable history.”—Marlin Fitzwater, Press Secretary, Bush Administration

“The book is an entertaining and enlightening account of Bush’s days in office.  It provides a thoughtful insight into Bush’s character — the values on which he based his life and that have guided his career.  It also provides a candid and revealing view of the man behind the office, and its behind-the-scenes look at the policy process and life at the White House is sure to give scholars new avenues for research.”—Gen. Brent Scowcroft, National Security Advisor, Bush Administration
