Forty-­three men have served as President of the United States. Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words. A unique and intimate biography, the book covers the entire scope of the elder President Bush’s life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise as a Congressman, U.­S. Representative to China and the United Nations, CIA Director, Vice President, and President.

The book shines new light on both the accomplished statesman and the warm, decent man known best by his family. In addition, George W. Bush discusses his father’s influence on him throughout his own life, from his childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-­term Presidency.

George H. W. Bush is much too modest to brag about what he accomplished as the forty-­first president of the United States. As a result, the conventional wisdom about his presidency misses many of his greatest achievements. Now this unique insider account by former chief of staff John H. Sununu finally gives this indispensable president full credit for the positive impact he had on the United States and the world.­Though Bush is rightfully remembered for orchestrating one of the largest and most effective military campaigns in history—­the first Gulf War—­Sununu argues that this success overshadowed many of his other significant accomplishments. Most important, of course, was Bush's calm and capable leadership during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Through skillful command and his own special brand of diplomatic tact, Bush helped shape a world in which the United States emerged as the lone superpower. These foreign policy...

A hilarious “quizography” on the dumbfounding life of George W. Bush
Pop Quiz

George W. Bush is:

the greatest American statesman since Abraham Lincoln.

a champion of the underdog and a thorn in the side of the wealthy.

articulate, thoughtful, and judicious—a very, very wise man.

linguistically challenged (“I know how hard it is to put food on your family”), proudly ignorant (he actually boasts about not reading newspapers), and inexplicably addicted to nicknaming (aide Karl Rove is “Turd Blossom”)—in short, the least qualified, most polarizing figure ever to be appointed President of the United States, and the only White House occupant to have once been videotaped picking his nose.

If you answered d, this book is for you. In The George W. Bush Quiz Book, New Yorker humorist and bestselling author of The Clothes Have No Emperor, Paul Slansky, brings you a comical compendium of quizzes filled with hundreds of questions and answers on the personal and political life of . . .

To date, there are only a couple dozen or so books specifically about the Presidency of George W. Bush. Political operatives, members of the media, and former administration officials have written most of the volumes. Additionally, the early books on the Bush presidency focus on the various aspects and dimensions of the “War on Terror.­” In essence, these studies challenge the justification of our deployment, the “Bush doctrine” and the assumptions of nation building. Few volumes focus on his quite substantial legislative record and impact. There are a few academic volumes on the Bush presidency, but they were completed while he was still in office. They tend to be biased and uniformly negative. The George W. Bush Presidency: A Rhetorical Perspective seeks to remedy this lack of academic investigation of the 43rd president and his rhetorical strategies. This volume is unique because the contributors analyze the Bush Presidency from a largely rhetorical perspective. The chapters . . .

Faustian Foreign Policy from Woodrow Wilson to George W. Bush critiques U.­S. foreign policy during this period by showing how moralistic diplomacy has increasingly assumed Faustian overtones, especially during the Cold War and following September 11. The ideological components of American diplomacy, originating in the late 18th and 19th centuries, evolved through the 20th century as U.­S. economic and political power steadily increased. Seeing myth making as essential in any country's founding and a common determinant of its foreign policy, Professor Joan Hoff reveals how the basic belief in its exceptionalism has driven America's past and present attempts to remake the world in its own image. She expands her original concept of 'independent internationalism' as the modus operandi of U.­S. diplomacy to reveal the many unethical Faustian deals the United States entered into since 1920 to obtain its current global supremacy.

Torture. Secret prisons. Wiretaps on Americans. Even with a new president in the White House, daily headlines contain disturbing revelations about how the United States conducts itself in the “war on terror.­” While other books have analyzed specific, shocking issues about the war on terror, there is a surprising disconnect in them: they don’t connect the actions of the George W. Bush administration to those of previous administrations. State Power and Democracy is the first to do that. It shows that the Bush police state didn’t commence when Bush was inaugurated. It proves, instead, that the seeds of an American police state can be traced all the way back to the founding of the republic.

This ebook consists of a summary of the ideas, viewpoints and facts presented by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in his book “Crimes Against Nature, How George W. Bush and His Corporate Pals Are Plundering the Country and Hijacking our Democracy”. This summary offers a concise overview of the entire book in less than 30 minutes reading time.

George H. W. Bush ranks among America's most distinguished men of the twentieth century. A war hero, businessman, politician, and the forty-­first president of the United States, Bush has spent most of his life dedicated to public service.­Curt Smith worked with Bush for more than twenty years, including during his presidency, when Smith wrote more speeches for Bush than anyone else. Smith's exploration of Bush's service includes in-­depth narratives on the invasion of Panama, the first Gulf War, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Iron Curtain. He also chronicles the contrasting presidential elections of 1988 and 1992, examining the successes and failures of each.

De l'élection présidentielle de 2004 jusqu'au cyclone Katrina, un summum dans sa carrière d'humoriste, sont réunies ici les nouvelles pensées les plus étonnantes de George Bush, illustrées de dessins le mettant en scène dans toute sa splendeur. En bonus, la parole a été laissée à Arnold Schwarzenegger, l'inénarrable gouverneur de Californie, dont les saillies sur les femmes, l'économie, l'environnement ou encore le mariage gay méritaient d'être inscrites dans le marbre. Laissons le mot de la fin à George Bush, qui a ainsi conclut son discours prononcé en août 2004 à Beaverton : " J'espère que vous partirez d'ici en vous disant : Qu'est-­ce qu'il a dit ? " George Bush survolant à bord d'Air Force One les inondations causées par le cyclone Katrina, le 31 août 2005 : " Tout a été balayé... C'est désastreux, ça doit être deux fois plus désastreux au sol ! " " Je suis honoré de serrer la main d'un courageux citoyen irakien qui s'est fait trancher la main par Saddam Hussein. "

Die erste Ausgabe des Nachrichtenmagazins Der Spiegel nach der Präsidentschaftswahl in den USA trug den Titel 'Augen zu und durch' . Auf dem Titelbild war eine Fotomontage der Freiheitsstatue zu sehen, deren Augen mit dem Sternenbanner verhängt waren. Auf diese Weise kommentierte das wichtigste politische Magazin Deutschlands die Wiederwahl von George W. Bush. Diese Ausgabe des Spiegel markiert das Ende der Berichterstattung über den US-­Wahlkampf des Jahres 2004 , der wie kein anderer die deutsche Öffentlichkeit bewegt und ein weltweites Interesse geweckt hat. Nach den Unregelmäßigkeiten bei der US-­Wahl 2000 und den Anschlägen vom 11. September 2001 richtete sich mehr und mehr das Interesse der Welt auf die Außenpolitik der USA, vor allem deshalb, weil sie innerhalb kürzester Zeit zwei Kriege begannen .
