Absorbing accounts of the leaders who have changed and are changing the course of history. The selection of leaders profiled reflects an international scope and focuses on the most exciting figures in the news today.

Volumes examine each leader's life both from the point of view of their personal history and their role in the politics and governing of their time.

Each profile includes a discussion of the leader's legacy to future generations.

George W. Bush was born into a family that believed in public service through politics. His grandfather served as a senator from Connecticut; his father served as the 41st president of the United Sates; his brother has served as governor of Florida; and George W. served as governor of Texas before being elected the nation's 43rd president.

Having gained the office in one of the most controversial elections in the history of the United States, President Bush was on uncertain ground in the early months of his presidency. But the terrorist attack on the United States in September 2001 has been a vital proving ground.

President Bush seems to have learned, as have his fellow Americans, that America's interest and the interest of the world community go hand in hand.
