Employing a theory of institutional interconnectivity, Waterman evaluates the presidency from a historical perspective, including information about changes in presidential resources, the role of the media in the emergence of the modern presidency, and other aspects in the ongoing evolution of the office. Chapters on the Vice-Presidency, Presidential relations with Congress, and the media serve to provide a context for the place of the presidency in modern politics. A treatment of post-9/11 political phenomena and the effects of the War on Terror on presidential and vice-presidential politics is also integrated throughout the text.
