George W. Bush
This biography examines the life of George W. Bush—one of the most controversial U.S. presidents in recent history—before, during, and after his two terms in the White House.
Rountree, the author of Judging the Supreme Court; Constructions and Motives in Bush v. Gore (2007) presents an overview of Bush's life and time in office in this biography intended for high school students. The opening chapters cover Bush's early years from his Texas childhood up to his successful bid for governor, while the rest are devoted to the presidency, emphasizing memorable issues such as the contested win over Gore, hurricane Katrina, September 11, the war, and the plunging economy. Each chapter includes notes citing source material. Also included are photographs of Bush throughout the years, a timeline, and annotated bibliography.
