9780199861040: The Paradoxes of the American Presidency

In The Paradoxes of the American Presidency, two prize-winning presidential scholars, Thomas E. Cronin and Michael A. Genovese, explore the complex institution of the American presidency by presenting a series of paradoxes that shape and define the office. Rewritten and updated to reflect recent political events--including the controversial presidency of George W. Bush, the vice presidency of Dick Cheney, the presidency of Barack Obama, and the 2010 and 2012 elections--this must-read fourth edition incorporates findings from the latest scholarship, recent elections and court cases, and essential survey research.

"The authors provide numerous and engaging examples from specific administrations to present their points in a way that students should be able to better understand the complex nature of executive branch politics."--Adam L. Warber, Clemson University


"The book raises important questions, all of which can be the foundation for extended class discussion and ample opportunity for in-class elaboration."--Matthew Eshbaugh-Soha, University of North Texas
