Bush : George W. Bush's legacy still resonates in American policy at home and abroad. Jean Smith's comprehensive biography of Bush has been acclaimed by reviewers for its fair-minded assessment of Bush's presidency.

Bush examines how the president's deep religious faith shaped his character but also gave him a worldview that oversimplified complicated problems; his certainty about the morality of his actions meant he had no misgivings about detaining terrorists suspects indefinitely or authorizing unconstitutional surveillance activities. Bush called himself "the decider," and contrary to popular perception, Smith says that it was an apt description; no other modern president in modern times acted with such self-assured autonomy, sometimes even against the counsel of his advisers.

Smith argues that Bush's decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003 was the worst foreign-policy decision any president ever made. But he also credits the president for wiser initiatives, such as leading the global fight against AIDS. Authoritative and thorough, Bush is an insightful biography of America's forty-third president.
