MEDIA REVIEWS

"George W. Bush s fateful foreign policy decisions pose questions that historians and political scientists will be trying to answer for decades to come. Using the conceptual tools of political science and the best information currently available, Robert Swansbrough gives this enterprise a strong start with this thorough, nuanced examination of both Bush and his administration s decision-making processes. Test by Fire is an excellent choice for courses on the presidency as well as enlightening reading for anyone seeking to understand the Bush presidency." - Gary Jacobson, Professor of Political Science, University of California, San Diego

"This book tells a story that is a must-read for all Americans. Swansbrough s analysis of George Bush s abuse of power, and the implications for the nation of his ill-conceived plan to invade Iraq, greatly aids our understanding of the subversion of the Constitution since 9/11." - David Gray Adler, Professor of Political Science, Idaho State University
