The George W. Bush Presidency. Volume II: Domestic and Economic Policy $190.00
Editors: Meena Bose and Richard Himelfarb (Hofstra University, NY, USA)
Book Description:
Given the focus on foreign affairs and national security following 9/11, it is easy to overlook the domestic and economic legacies of the George W. Bush presidency. However, the articles in this volume argue that not only were these policies consequential to the nation, but in a number of instances they defied the conventional wisdom concerning the Bush White House. While Bush pursued ideologically conservative policies in some areas (e.g., Social Security, Supreme Court nominations and taxes), in others he did not (e.g., education, trade, government spending). Other examples include staffing (more competent and less ideological than one would expect) and press relations (relatively transparent). Taken together, these chapters will provoke second thoughts about Bush's domestic presidency as they argue that his policies frequently deviated from doctrinaire conservatism and changed the nation.

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
