Presidential scholar Fred I. Greenstein brings together a distinguished group of experts to offer an early analysis of the George W. Bush presidency. The authors begin with a look at George W. Bush in the context of his modern predecessors, viewing the Bush White House in comparative perspective and examining the president's political ethos, including a unique insider's view from a recently departed administration official. They then discuss budgetary and economic policy, foreign and national security policy, and the problems of domestic lawmaking in a 50-50 government. The book concludes with an assessment of George W. Bush's relationship with the congress, the public and the American electorate.
