From the Back Cover:

Anyone interested in the presidency will want to read Lewis Gould's The Modern American Presidency. It is a compelling analysis and critique that lays bare the current strengths and weak-nesses of the office and reminds us that the presidency remains a work in progress.--Robert Dallek, author of Flawed Giant: Lyndon B. Johnson, 1960–1973 and Hail to the Chief: The Making and Unmaking of American Presidents

The Modern American Presidency is that rare achievement: an informative synthesis that does not shy away from strong, provocative judgments. Gould has a great eye for the telling quotation and the narrative is a pleasure to read. These qualities make it ideal for the general reader who wants an overview of the presidency.--Richard J. Ellis, author of Presidential Lightning Rods and editor of Founding the American Presidency

About the Author:
