About the Author:

Fred I. Greenstein is Professor of Politics, Princeton University. Among his several books is The Hidden Hand Presidency: Eisenhower as Leader.

From Library Journal:

Despite the limitations of examining the presidency from a single characteristic, leadership remains the most popular model for evaluating presidential performance. In this book, edited by a Princeton professor, each modern president, beginning with Franklin Roosevelt, receives an essay by a leading presidential scholar. All presidents except Lyndon Johnson have their reputations as leaders reaffirmed or rehabilitated. President Johnson remains a tragic hero defeated by the Vietnam War. While The Modern Presidency , edited by Malcolm Shaw ( LJ 11/15/87), presented a traditional summary of the presidency, Greenstein's book offers the latest interpretations of presidential leadership. Though biographical notes about the contributors would have been helpful, this thoroughly researched and documented book is essential for presidential studies collections.
