Editorial Reviews


"In this short of tightly argued work, Hoopes presents a clear thesis: George W. Bush has misunderstood and misused his moral authority as president….Hoopes argues that a misguided moral superiority animates decision making in the Bush White House, blinding them to the perils of abusing power….Highly recommended. General readers and all undergraduates."



"Hoopes, a Babson professor, takes the position that the prevailing cult of moral leadership is at least partially to blame for Bush's mistakes….Harvard's 1970s b-school curriculum would have emphasized a CEO's duty to lead through moral influence, Hoopes believes….Hoopes spends the rest of the book addressing those questions--though many of his readers will already have strong opinions about the answers."




"In this short but highly incisive book, business historian Jim Hoopes explains why contemporary America's cult of moral leadership, as exercised by corporate CEOs as well as politicians and presidents, is such a problematic idea. Hoopes is an expert guide to the ethical borderland that links management and morality, which is why his explanation for the occasional successes and the vast failures of President George W. Bush is so fresh and revealing."


Nelson Lichtenstein, Professor of History, University of California, Santa Barbara, author of American Capitalism: Social Thought and Political Economy in 20th Century America.
