The George W. Bush legacy
From Publisher's Website: The George W. Bush Legacy assesses the current president's political strategy as well as his administration's policies. With his two terms marked by global tension and intense partisanship, chapter authors look at the Bush administration's efforts to influence the direction of the judiciary, expand executive power, institutionalize the 2001 tax cuts, deliver policies and appointments for favored "base" constituencies, and increase the size and reach of the national security state. Contributors also offer perspectives on the responses to the events of September 11, 2001-including the fateful decision to go to war in Iraq that has perhaps become the defining action of this presidency. Making the volume easy to use throughout a presidency course, each chapter focuses on one aspect of the Bush administration, ranging from the president's leadership style and the influence of interest groups, to the effects of public opinion and the role of the courts. This authoritative book provides measured and nuanced appraisals of the short- and long-term impact of Bush's accomplishments and failures at a particularly pivotal time in American history.
