Editorial Reviews


The George W. Bush Presidency is a comprehensive and insightful book that examines the rhetoric of President Bush from a variety of perspectives. It is an impressive contribution to the emerging body of work related to the 43rd president. Expert analysis of Bush’s major speeches is provided by a diverse group of scholars of rhetoric, many of whom come to new and compelling conclusions regarding the foundations, formation, delivery, and reception of the President’s rhetoric during and after his time in the Oval Office. Thoroughly researched and well-written, the eight chapters in this book constitute a new and necessary assessment of George W. Bush’s rhetorical legacy. (James M. Brandon, Hillsdale College)

[This] is an important contribution toward appreciating how to understand a presidency as it is situated in history, as well as in recent hindsight, for readers from both sides of the aisle. I think analysis further down the road will identify this text as an essential tome that contributes valuable insights into a controversial presidency during a politically polarized time in our nation (Melanie Mills, Eastern Illinois University)
