Book Description:
The George W. Bush Presidency reshaped American politics through its policies and its use of executive power. This volume engages fundamental debates about the Bush (43) presidency’s expansive interpretation of executive power, primarily in foreign and national-security policy, but also more generally for leadership and policy making. It examines presidential elections and party realignments in the early twenty-first century and their consequences for White House policy making. It analyzes how the Bush administration pursued initiatives in faith-based programs and homeland security, and established organizational structures that would endure well beyond his presidency. The volume also examines how the Bush (43) presidency established an enduring legacy in American politics through the Supreme Court and the Office of the First Lady. It concludes with an assessment of how these many areas of executive action and influence continue to direct presidential governance. By examining their evolution, this volume reveals choices and constraints in American politics today that derive from President Bush’s leadership. (Imprint: Nova)


Book Reviews

“George W. Bush’s was a remarkable presidency. It is only now time to consider its ‘history,’ and these volumes—drawn from those who worked in the administration, studied it, and lived through it—offer a singular resource for understanding a man and a time when America restructured its relationship with the world, and with the twenty-first century.” - Jeffrey A. Engel, Director of the Center for Presidential History, Southern Methodist University

“The rich and varied contents of this report of the Hofstra conferences on the modern presidencies are must reading for anyone interested in the George W. Bush presidency and the modern presidency more generally.” - Fred I. Greenstein, Professor Emeritus of Politics, Princeton University

“Hofstra University consistently leads the nation in its study of presidential leadership. With no equal, Hofstra has again brought together the administration’s major players and the nation’s premier presidential scholars to assess how the George W. Bush administration managed foreign and domestic policy during its eight years in power. From the war in Iraq to faith-based initiatives, these three volumes provide the preeminent analyses available for understanding how this administration championed its multi-faceted and often controversial agendas.” - Shirley Anne Warshaw, Evans Chair of Eisenhower Leadership Studies, Gettysburg College

“A unique, comprehensive, and accessible collection of scholarship and commentary on the personal, political, and policy dimensions of the George W. Bush Presidency. These volumes are likely to initiate an extended debate on the merits of President Bush’s judgments and his exercise of presidential power, a debate not only on the past but one that will shape the future of the American Presidency.” - Stephen J. Wayne, Professor of Government, Georgetown University
