Autograph Note signed: "To Jamie [?]/with our/very best wishes/George Bush", "Brent Scowcroft", 3¾x5½. Bookplate for A World Transformed. GEORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH, born in 1924, was Ronald Reagan's Vice President (1981-1989) before serving as 41st U.S. President (1989-1993), the first incumbent Vice President to be elected President since 1836. Bush's distinguished resume included oil company executive, Texas Congressman, Chairman of the Republican Party, Director of Central Intelligence, Ambassador to China and Ambassador to the United Nations. As President he conducted a largely successful foreign policy, including the first Gulf War against Iraq, Operation Desert Storm, and the 1989 invasion of Panama to depose General Manuel Noriega. But he wasn't re-elected largely due to shortcomings in his domestic policy, including a tax raise in 1990 after a campaign promise - the famous "Read my lips: No - new - taxes" speech - not to raise them. His son, George W. Bush, became 43rd president in 2001 and served two terms. BRENT SCOWCROFT (b. 1925), a retired Air Force Lieutenant General long involved in strategic studies, had served as National Security Advisor to President Ford before assuming the same office under President Bush. In A World Transformed, the former President and his key policy advisor describe the foreign policy developments of the first Bush presidency, including the collapse of the Soviet empire. Scowcroft reportedly coined the phrase "new world order" employed by President Bush in his address to Congress (March 6, 1991) after the Gulf War. Scowcroft publicly criticized President George W. Bush's preparations to attack Iraq in 2003. Fine condition.
