In the most up-to-date core text on the presidency, Pika and Maltese once again deliver a comprehensive, accessible, and engaging analysis of the increasingly political nature of the office, while artfully balancing its historical foundations.

This revised seventh edition features a new chapter on the first 100 days of the Obama administration and discussion of:

  • the precedent-setting campaign and election, 
  • Obama s transition to the White House, 
  • new cabinet members and high-level advisers,
  • the legislative agenda and executive legislative relations, and 
  • the outlook on foreign policy.
