Reviews
The introduction is exceptional in providing context to help grasp the transformations that occurred during the Bush presidency and the varying views of his potential legacy....Recommended for academic libraries and public libraries where it would meet a collection need.-- "Booklist"
For those who need a refresher, this book will provide that and more. Definitions not only identify but also place in the historical context those included, and the inclusions appear to be exhaustive.-- "American Reference Books Annual"
Conley seems to have done the impossible--he has given us not only a detailed time line of the Bush presidency but also provides an essential guide to the players, policies, and events that made those eight years some of the most momentous in modern history. I rediscovered things I had forgotten already on nearly every page.--Gary L. Gregg, Director of the McConnell Center for Political Leadership, The University of Louisville
