The George W. Bush Presidency. Volume III: Foreign Policy $190.00
Editors: Meena Bose and Paul Fritz (Hofstra University, NY, USA)
Book Description:
While candidate George W. Bush promised a humble foreign policy, after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks President Bush implemented a highly ambitious – and controversial – foreign policy agenda. Examining the contentious decision to invade Iraq, the expansion of presidential power in foreign affairs, the apparent unilateralism that challenged established international norms, and the ideological underpinnings of Bush’s foreign policy, many articles in this collection demonstrate why the administration proved to be so divisive domestically and internationally. However, other pieces in the collection show the Bush administration pursued more conventional approaches to certain international issues, such as the rising power of China and a nuclear North Korea. This collection thus both challenges some conventional views of Bush’s foreign policy and provides a deeper understanding of why George W. Bush is viewed as one of the most controversial foreign policy presidents of the modern era. (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
