Pressestimmen"The Bush presidency - for good or Ill - is one of the most important administrations since FDR. This book places the Bush Revolution, and that's what it is, in context, giving the reader the tools for making sense of the momentous changes taking place in the United States and around the world." - Michael A. Genovese, author of The Power of the American Presidency; "We need this book as an exploration of the legitimacy of the George W. Bush presidency. His administration has the potential to be a pivotal point in our history, eminently worthy of the analysis this book brings." - G. Calvin Mackenzie, Goldfarb Family Distinguished Professor of American Government, Colby College"
