This collaboration of distinguished presidential scholars offers one of the first book-length post-presidency analyses of President George W. Bush and his policies. Mark J. Rozell and Gleaves Whitney have assembled a varied list of contributors from both ends of the political spectrum, bringing together academics and professionals to provide a glimpse into the politics and policies that defined President George W. Bush's presidency. Testing the Limits discusses all aspects of the Bush policy and administration, from staff appointments to foreign and domestic policy to budgetary politics. Several contributors focus their energy on the expansion of presidential powers during Bush presidency, assessing the increased influence of the Vice-President, the politicization of federal court appointments, and the development of executive privilege and presidential secrecy.

From the Back Cover:

"A fascinating account of a controversial presidency. George W. Bush entered office in the distrustful aftermath of a disputed election, and he left office amid the uncertainty of two unfinished wars and an incipient depression; but in between he managed to accomplish more--for better and worse--than almost anyone had thought possible. Mark Rozell, Gleaves Whitney, and the scholars they have enlisted explain how this happened, and what it still means. Required reading for any serious student of the modern presidency."--H. W. Brands, University of Texas at Austin, author of Traitor to His Class: The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt

"A timely and provocative set of essays on a subject of both immediate and enduring significance. Taken together, the essays provide a remarkably comprehensive and carefully balanced examination of the historically important presidency of George W. Bush."--David Marion, Hampden-Sydney College, author of The Jurisprudence of Justice William J. Brennan, Jr.: The Law and Politics of 'Libertarian Dignity'
