9780840030122: Presidential Leadership: Politics and Policy Making

Written by two renowned presidential scholars, this comprehensive, best-selling text examines all aspects of the presidency in rich detail. With a special emphasis on policy, the new edition surveys the most up-to-date scholarship on the topic, and includes an examination of the midterm presidential election. Taking a theoretical approach, the authors use engaging analysis and timely, fascinating examples to view the presidency from two theoretical standpoints--the president as "facilitator," and the president as "director of change."

Review:

"I appreciated the opportunity to use the policymaking emphasis of the textbook so that the students could see the centrality of the presidential office in facilitating changes in our governance system in domestic and in international politics." - Murel Jones, Virginia State University

"The greatest strengths of the book include...the historical overview of the presidency... (and) the suggested readings at the end of each chapters..." - Dr. Curtis R. Berry, Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania

"...clearly written...covering all the topics utilized in most presidency classes." -Bruce Altschuler, SUNY Oswego

"The three greatest strengths are (the) breadth of topics covered, its readability, and its practical application to the study of the presidency." - Jeff Cummins, California State University, Fresno
