John Robert Greene has produced an exceptional work of scholarship. This sweeping examination of the presidency of Bush 43 is likely to remain the seminal account of a controversial and remarkably significant administration. Strikingly fair-minded, Greene's book challenges the conventional narrative of those on the Right and the Left regarding the Bush presidency. This is a gem of a book-a must-read for all those interested in contemporary history and the American presidency." - Stephen F. Knott, author of The Lost Soul of the American Presidency: The Decline into Demagoguery and the Prospects for Renewal

"John Robert Greene's biography of George W. Bush hits all the high notes-the good and the bad-of a straightforward life but complicated presidency. Neither friend nor foe of the forty-third president, and based on archival records only recently available, Greene's well-written presidential biography makes a strong case that, like him or hate it, the presidency of George W. Bush mattered, and we ignore it at our (scholarly) peril." - Charles L. Zelden, author of Bush v. Gore: Exposing the Growing Crisis in American Democracy, Third Expanded Edition

"The Presidency of George W. Bush is a perceptive, richly documented, and thoroughly fair analysis of a controversial chief executive. Anybody who wants to understand the momentous events of the Bush administration should read this excellent book." - John J. Pitney Jr, author of After Reagan: Bush, Dukakis, and the 1988 Election

"We live in a world forged by the George W. Bush administration. That is John Robert Greene's thoughtful conclusion to his insightful new assessment of the nation's forty-third president, one in which new records and evidence provides a clearer picture of this tumultuous time in American history and a more nuanced, more balanced, and ultimately indispensable assessment of a man whose eight years in office continue to reverberate now two full decades later. Future historians will be thanking Greene for his diligence and judgment for generations to come." - Jeffrey A. Engel, director, Center for Presidential History, Southern Methodist University

"This study presents a comprehensive and judicious analysis of the highly consequential George W. Bush presidency. It evaluates leadership choices, initiatives, and challenges from the start of Bush's political career through his two-term presidency, from elections to domestic policy to war and combating terrorism to economic crisis. With detailed scrutiny of the archival record, memoirs, interviews, and other research sources, the book deftly explains the philosophy of governance that informed Bush's decisions and their enduring influence on US and world politics in the twenty-first century. The lucid and engaging evaluation is essential reading for scholars of the American presidency and well-suited for course instruction on presidents and American politics." - Meena Bose, Peter S. Kalikow Chair in Presidential Studies and professor of political science, Hofstra University
