Pub. Date:
Lind and Tamas (both politics and government, Illinois State U.) provide readings on President George W. Bush's economic, domestic, and foreign policies, and terrorism and military actions from 2000-2006. Readings were chosen to represent the most central and controversial issues in his administration and focus on events that influenced citizen judgment of the president's actions, such as Enron, Social Security reform, stem cell research, the Patriot Act, Hurricane Katrina, 9/11, and the war in Iraq. For each issue, a pro and con speech is included--one by Bush and the other by an opponent of the policy, usually Democratic senators or congressmen. Presidential documents and answers to journalists' questions are also provided, as well as a framework for analysis of his remaining years as president.
