From Library Journal:

From interviews with former President Carter and his senior staff collected by the Miller Center at the University of Virginia, Jones ( The United States Congress ) discovers a high level of consistency in Carter's approach to Congress. Labeling this approach "the trusteeship presidency," Jones discusses the forces that brought Carter, a political outsider, into office, and the President's view of himself as a leader whose purpose was to exist above the fray and pursue moral right over political expediency. Jones argues that basic adherence to this position, rather than political inexperience or ineptitude, characterized Carter's dealings with Congress. Some of the analysis may be a bit detailed for lay readers, but this is a well-argued and interesting discussion for others. Scott Wright, Coll. of St. Thomas, St. Paul
