""Assessing George W. Bush's Legacy" presents a sound set of analyses of the Bush presidency that adds up to an excellent edited book. Anyone interested in American politics or the Bush administration will benefit greatly from the analyses and insights of these British political scientists."-- James P. Pfiffner, University Professor, School of Public Policy, George Mason University"Iwan Morgan and Philip Davies have assembled many of Britain's best scholars of American politics in this collection. Students of the presidency and contemporary American history will benefit from reading the thoughtful and often provocative essays on the complex and consequential presidency of George W. Bush."--George C. Edwards III, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, George and Julia Blucher Jordan Chair in Presidential Studies, Department of Political Science, Texas A&M University, and editor, "Presidential Studies Quarterly""George W. Bush wanted to be a consequential president. And he was. But what were the consequences of his administration for the presidency, the Republican Party, the U.S. economy at home, and the conduct of U.S. foreign policy overseas? Iwan Morgan, Philip Davies, and their colleagues provide some initial (and discouraging) answers in their important new book "Assessing George W. Bush's Legacy" "The Right Man?" A must-read for all of us who will live with the consequences of the Bush presidency for years to come."--John Kenneth White, Catholic University of America and author of "Barack Obama's America: How New Conceptions of Race, Family, and Religion Ended the Reagan Era"
