Assessing the George W. Bush Presidency: A Tale of Two Terms

Synopsis

In one of the first volumes to assess the full term of the George W. Bush presidency, Andrew Wroe and Jon Herbert join together the work of leading American and European scholars into fifteen succinct and incisive chapters.

Contributors such as Jim Pfiffner, Jim McCormick, Graham Wilson, and Alan Gitelson account for the Bush administration's successes and failures, paying particular attention to Bush's foreign policy, the repercussions of the Bush Doctrine, and his policies regarding trade and homeland security. Essays investigate the president's domestic economic and social policies, as well as his dealings with other institutions within the U. S. political system. The result is a comprehensive guide to the Bush presidency and legacy.
