The presidency of George W. Bush continues to be debated by historians, political scientists, scholars, and students alike. Two scholars at Princeton University, Sean Wilentz and Julian E. Zelizer, recently conducted a course on Teaching ‘W’, and discovered that academics should reconsider updating their approach to teaching history by incorporating more recent texts in their curricula. For the full article, go to: http://tinyurl.com/2cs9887

They write, “A seminar like ours is just the beginning of the conversation– of both the Bush presidency and the study of contemporary history. Political questions are too often left in the hands of economists, political scientists, and other social scientists. But historical analysis is extraordinarily valuable as well. Analyzing our recent political past is not just an important intellectual exercise. It can help scholars, policy makers, and citizens gain a stronger foundation for making vital political decisions in the coming years.”

Decision Points, President Bush’s book, now in paperback, is an excellent primary text that covers the historic events of one of the most consequential eras in American history. The book is sure to spark classroom discussions and debate, further enhancing the teaching of U.S. history in the first decade of the 21st century.
