The Leadership of George Bush

Roman Popadiuk served in the Bush White House from 1989 to 1992 as deputy assistant to the president and deputy press secretary for foreign affairs. In that capacity, he was closely involved with many of the day-to-day decisions of the administration during a momentous period that saw the dismantling of the Berlin Wall, the rise of a new global coalition, the curbing of a dictator"s expansionist policies in the Middle East, and shifting domestic, economic and political currents.

Now the executive director of the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation in College Station, Texas, Popadiuk examines the ways in which the personal leadership style of George Bush influenced the formation and execution of policy during his presidency. Popadiuk composes a mosaic of events, quotations and observations that yield a broad view of the ways in which a president"s personal qualities and philosophies impinge upon leadership options.
