In this volume, presidential scholars from communication, history, law, philosophy, political science, and psychology explore the broader phenomenon of leadership. Like leadership more generally, presidential leadership is a value-laden activity, an exercise in communication, and a collective enterprise. It is also subject to psychological and historical barriers to interpretation. Finally, presidential leadership is instrumental: presidents must achieve their valued ends. Contributors address each of these aspects of leadership in essays on how presidential values are determined or constructed, how they are condoned and criticized, how they are packaged and conveyed, and how they are interpreted and acted upon.

Review:

"At last, a book on presidential leadership that goes beyond strategic and tactical thinking about power stakes to explore the tensions between moral and ethical values on one hand and situational leadership on the other. I would recommend this volume not only to anyone teaching a course on the presidency, but also to anyone working in the next administration."--Richard Pious, Adolph and Effie Ochs Professor, Barnard College "This wonderful collection of first-rate articles deals with an oft neglected but very important element of presidential leadership: the role of values in presidential politics. The top-notch scholars who have contributed to this excellent volume offer a rich and diverse take on this vital topic and illuminate for the reader the vital role values play in politics and in leadership."--Michael A. Genovese, Loyola Chair of Leadership, Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Institute for Leadership Studies, Loyola Marymount University and Past President, Presidency Research Group, American Political Science Association "The editors of this book have brought together an eclectic group of distinguished scholars to examine the role of values as they underlie leadership in the American presidency. The mix of disciplinary perspectives, historical and contemporary cases, and normative concerns yields a volume of nuance and insight that will be of interest to all who study leadership and the presidency. "--Robert J. Spitzer, Distinguished Service Professor of Political Science, SUNY Cortland and Past President, Presidency Research Group, American Political Science Association "Effective presidential leadership needs to be informed and shaped by the appropriate moral context. Conjoining normative and empirical analyses, this collection of new studies of presidential leadership covers many of the familiar topics in leadership studies, while emphasizing the crucial dimension of ideas and beliefs, all too often neglected in modern social science."--Jeffrey K. Tulis, Associate Professor, Department of Government, University of Texas at Austin
