In Called to Serve, founding director Charles F. Hermann and writer Sally Dee Wade chronicle the twenty-year history of the George Bush School of Government and Public Service, which has rapidly evolved into one of the nation's major professional graduate schools of public and international affairs.

The story traces the progress of the Bush School from its initial challenges to secure funding, students, and professors to its departure from the College of Liberal Arts as an independent unit with its own dean and faculty, and through the creation of its current curricula and policy-oriented research institutes. Insider stories and candid photographs illustrate how President Bush's focused personal interest and involvement with the school and its students have contributed to the many developments and successes that the Bush School has enjoyed.

With carefully researched narrative and absorbing, behind-the-scenes details, Called to Serve documents the first two decades of the Bush School's brief but significant history and looks to the promising future that awaits this widely respected academic enterprise.

"This history of the Bush School of Government and Public Service is the inspiring story of a handful of dedicated faculty, staff, and administrators building a nationally recognized institution from the ground up. From overcoming significant cultural, financial, and political challenges to developing a program with partnerships throughout Texas A&M University, the state of Texas and the entire country, it is a story of perseverance, dedication, talent, and striving for excellence. And a lot of fun along the way."--Robert M. Gates, former CIA Director, former Secretary of Defense; former President of TAMU, and former interim dean of Bush School

--Robert M. Gates (04/20/2017)

"This book is a wonderful review of the school from its beginning and pays tribute to the uniqueness of its namesake. President Bush's legacy will breathe and live through the lives of the students influenced by Professor Hermann." -Don Powell, former Chair of the Texas A&M Board of Regents
--Don Powell (04/25/2017)
