The George W. Bush Foreign Policy Reader: Presidential Speeches and Commentary
Supporters and critics of Georg W. Bush agree that the foreign policy of his administration has made a significant break with precedent and that its effects will be felt for decades to come. John W. Dietrich's carefully edited collection assembles the president's most important policy statements on issues including the war on terrorism; Iraq; global warning; and relations with countries in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. Each topical chapter opens with an original essay providing background history and information, tracing Bush's policy choices, and highlighting key policy debates. The book presents a balanced portrait of the president's actions and motivations, so that readers can reach their own judgments on Bush's policies and their implications for future U.S. policy.
