Few presidents in modern times have seen their words and actions subject to such intense critical scrutiny as George W. Bush. His critics label him the 'Pariah President', personally inarticulate and at times politically incoherent; his supporters portray him as gifted and skilled, one of the most decisive, successful and popular leaders of our time. But if 'the person is now the policy' at the White House - and that person happens to be both activist and moralist - what kind of presidency and foreign policy flows from such a leader? How has Bush changed American politics and the role of the United States in the world? Alexander Moens offers the first systematic explanation of Bush's foreign policy by describing the complexities of the man and how his particular personality and style so heavily influence the final policy outcomes. Frank, engaging and insightful, it offers an original and carefully documented account of Bush's personality, his presidential style and his decision-making process, and how these three core ingredients in turn provide the key to understanding Bush's overall strategy and policy. The Foreign Policy of George W. Bush is an ideal reference for contemporary US foreign policy, international security, and diplomatic relations. With detailed and candid insights into the presidential leadership it will also make fascinating reading for those interested in the future of American politics.

A world leader in philanthropy (and father of the planet’s wealthiest man) and an expert on U.S. economic inequality (and heir of Oscar Mayer) on the “billionaire backlash”The “Man Bites Dog” story of over 1,000 highnet- worth individuals who rose up to protest the repeal of the estate tax made headlines everywhere last year. Central to the organization of what Newsweek tagged the “billionairebacklash” were two visionaries: Bill Gates, Sr., cochair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the largest foundation on earth, and Chuck Collins, cofounder of United for a Fair Economy and Responsible Wealth, and the great-grandson of meat packer Oscar Mayer who gave away his substantial inheritance at the age of twenty-six. Gates and Collins argue that individual wealth is a product not only of hard work and smart choices but of the society that provides the fertile soil for success. They don’t subscribe to the “Great Man” theory of wealth creation but contend that society’s investments, such as economic development, education, health care, and property rights protection, all contribute toany individual’s good fortune. With the repeal proposed by the Bush administration, we might be facing the future that Teddy Roosevelt feared—where huge fortunes amassed and untaxed would evolve into a dangerous andpermanent aristocracy. Repeal would drop federal revenues $294 billion in the first 10 years; 27 some $750 billion would be lost in the second decade, not to mention that the U.S. Treasury estimates that charitable contributions would drop by $6 billion a year. But what about all those modest families that would lose the farm? Gates and Collins expose the fallacy of this argument, pointing out that this is largely a myth and that the very same lobbies and politicians who are crying “cows” have opposed other legislation that would actually have helped small farmers. Weaving in personal narratives, history, and plenty of solideconomic sense, Gates and Collins make a sound and compelling case for tax reform, not repeal.

Against the New Authoritarianism traces the US descent into authoritarianism: the rise of a ruthless market fundamentalism, the emergence of a form of religious correctness that substitutes blind faith for critical reason, the growing militarization of everyday life, the corporate control of all elements of the dominant media, and an educational fundamentalism aimed at destroying any vestige of critical education as a foundation for an engaged citizenry and a vibrant democracy. Giroux examines the tragic events of Abu Ghraib and analyzes the conditions that made them possible, all the while trying to understand the role that education plays in creating violations of human rights that one largely attributes to authoritarian regimes. And he describes the need for progressives to develop a language of hope as a condition for critically engaged politics and the emergence of new social formations. The book ends with an engaging personal interview with the author.
