A clearly written, provocative analysis of the Bush presidency that draws on extensive interviews with White House staff. The Budget crisis of 1990 and the Gulf war receive particular attention as defining events in Bush's incumbency, demonstrating the strengths and weaknesses in his approach to presidential leadership. This book not only casts light on Bush's record in office, it also helps to resolve methodological problems that arise in the study of the presidency generally.
