The Bush Administration and the Gulf Crisis
Alex R. Hybel - Author

To most Americans, the Gulf War symbolizes the culmination of a highly sophisticated decision-making process within the Bush administration.

Controversial Issues in Presidential Selection
Controversial Issues in Presidential Selection (July 1991)
First Edition
Gary L. Rose - Editor

"There is much to like about this book. It addresses a wealth of issues, many having received renewed attention after the 1988 Bush-Dukakis campaign. I especially like the fact that all the contentious questions in the making of the president--including those arising from the primaries and the general election--are covered in this volume. This distinguishes the Rose book from most others. The role of the media, the place of the party conventi...(Read More)

Supremely Political (July 1990)
The Role of Ideology and Presidential Management in Unsuccessful Supreme Court Nominations
John Massaro - Author

Harrold Carswell, and culminating in a lively investigation of the Bork and Ginsburg cases, the author convincingly demonstrates that the Senate's negative actions can be traced to the exciting interplay of three factors.

The author dem...(Read More)
