“This important new study by two of our most respected presidency scholars sheds new light on the pivotal and paradoxical first Bush presidency. Their central argument—that Bush’s leadership approach was the same domestically and internationally–contradicts received wisdom because it concludes, persuasively, that political and policy incrementalism explain Bush’s overall leadership style. This book is a valuable and welcome addition to our understanding of Bush and executive leadership.”--Robert J. Spitzer, Distinguished Service Professor, Political Science, SUNY Cortland
