Jeb Bush: Aggressive Conservatism in Florida describes the rise of John Ellis (Jeb) Bush, the second son of former President George H.W. Bush, to political power in Florida. It examines the conservative theory that guided his behavior when he was elected and the aggressive manner in which he used the Office of Governor to pursue his goals. The book offers insight into his motivations and competencies, provides an analysis of the extent to which his self proclaimed "revolution" achieved its goals, and asks what the revolution meant for Florida. The author's own views naturally structure the analysis provided, but readers are invited to examine his argument and to propose alternative explanations for the Governor's actions and the policy outcomes of his administration.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A great read, packed with details and full of insight. The method of evaluating Bush's performance was sophisticated, balanced and thoroughly readable. This will be the definitive study of the Bush era in Florida. Outstanding! -- Lance DeHaven Smith, professor of public administration, Florida State University, co-author (with David Coburn) of Government in the Sunshine State
A critical, probing review of an administration that had little appetite for criticism and public oversight. -- Troy Kinsey, Florida BayNews 9
Son of one president, brother of another. When the seeds of ambition in Jeb Bush begin to sprout, Robert Crew's book is the one you'll want at hand. He provides an in-depth look at the Bush family legacy, Jeb's values and how he applied them while governing Florida-who prospered and who did not. If you want to know what Jeb Bush might be like as president, Crew's deeply researched, authoritative book is the best place to start. -- Ken Bode, former national political correspondent, NBC News
