From the Back Cover:

From the days of McKinley through the tumultuous days after September 11, Gould has written the freshest and most original study of the modern presidency. His portraits of the leaders are vividly drawn, insightful, and often surprising. . . . Destined to be a classic.--Steve Neal, political columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times

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
