Testing the Limits: George W. Bush and the Imperial Presidency
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
A fascinating account of a controversial presidency. George W. Bush entered office in the distrustful aftermath of a disputed election, and he left office amid the uncertainty of two unfinished wars and an incipient depression; but in between he managed to accomplish more―for better and worse―than almost anyone had thought possible. Mark Rozell, Gleaves Whitney, and the scholars they have enlisted explain how this happened, and what it still means. Required reading for any serious student of the modern presidency. (H W. Brands, University of Texas at Austin, author of Traitor to His Class: The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roo)
A timely and provocative set of essays on a subject of both immediate and enduring significance. Taken together, the essays provide a remarkably comprehensive and carefully balanced examination of the historically important presidency of George W. Bush. (David Marion, Hampden-Sydney College, author of The Jurisprudence of Justice William J. Brennan, Jr.: The Law and Politics of 'Libertarian Dig)
