The presidency of George W. Bush has been the subject of extensive commentary but limited scholarly analysis in the years since he left office. 43 draws extensively, but not solely, from the recently released interviews of the Miller Centers Presidential Oral History Program at the University of Virginia. This volume consists of ten chapters, written by some of todays most eminent presidency scholars, examining key topics and themes, including 9/11, the unitary executive, Supreme Court appointments, compassionate conservatism, Cheneys vice presidency, the Iraq War, and the financial crisis of 2008.43 is an inside look at one of the most controversial, and consequential, presidencies in American history. The essays in this volume take seriously the complexities of a White House trying to respond to the most devastating attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor, examining both the successes and failures of this administration in the first systemic effort to mine the confidential, candid oral history interviews recorded with senior officials from the Bush presidency. Relying heavily on insider accounts, the essays are critical, yet balanced, in providing assessments of Bushs controversial victory in 2000; endless wars precipitated by the 9/11 terrorist attacks; and legislative battles over taxes, education reform, Medicare, and attempts to address the Great Recession. These landmark events are illuminated by conversations with the decision-makers who made history.
