This introduction discusses the theme of this book, which is about the sex and moral agenda of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. It argues against the claim that Bush's faith and his connection with the Christian right were key factors in the formulation of his policies towards moral issues such as abortion, homosexuality and sex education, contending that Bush's policies were also influenced by middle-ground opinion. The book explains that, as both Texas Governor and President, Bush not only grasped the different niches of median opinion, but built upon them with unparalleled skill and precision.

Keywords:   George W. Bush, moral agenda, faith, Christian right, abortion, homosexuality, sex education, middle-ground opinion
