The center and the George W. Bush Foundation announced the project Thursday.

About 100 interviews are planned, including key figures of the Bush White House and Cabinet, members of Congress, foreign leaders and outside political advisers.

Bush says the project will offer a comprehensive look at what it was like to lead the country during what he described as extraordinary challenges.

The center's Presidential Oral History Program has conducted similar projects on presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
