Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boasting a timely collection of essays that helps readers reflect upon George W. Bush s use of constitutional and extra-constitutional power following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, this book assesses the impact of the war on terrorism on governing relations and the public in a broad scope. With articles written by some of the foremost scholars of the Presidency and Congress, the essays contained in the First Edition compare the unique context of the war on terrorism with established theories of presidential politics spanning leadership and crisis decision-making, job approval and public relations, electoral strategy, civil liberties, and relations with Congress. For professionals with a career or interest in political science, law, government, and/or political administration.
