Dyson Article on Iraq Surge

The impact of George W. Bush’s personality on his decision to surge troops in Iraq is discussed in the Winter 2010-11 issue of Political Science Quarterly in an article by Stephen Dyson, assistant professor of political science at the University of Connecticut.

In “George W. Bush, the Surge, and Presidential Leadership,” Dyson examines the impact of President George W. Bush’s personality and belief system on the decision to ‘surge’ troops in Iraq. He argues that absent Bush’s distinctive approach to leadership, the surge decision would not have been made.

UConn Today covered the article as well.
