Review:

"The Modern Presidency is a fine book for covering the institutional presidency and providing historical context of the modern presidency....Perhaps most important, The Modern Presidency is built on a foundation of scholarship but updated with more journalistic accounts interpreted by Pfiffner, who integrates recent events into a long-standing framework." Wayne Steger, DePaul University

"Students who read this book will emerge with a working knowledge of the office and the tools to understand its evolving role and place in our nation....This book is a winner in every way!"David Gray Adler, Idaho State University

"The integration of detail into thematic chapters was impressive to me." -Julia R. Azari, Marquette University
