Americans are disinterested in government and politics and cynical about those who govern. Underlying these attitudes is the view that government does not work. In response, this book asks two pointed questions: Is the presidency as an institution optimally designed for effective governance in the 21st century? And, if the current presidency has limitations and restrictions, how should the institution be redesigned? Focusing on the four key functions a president performs: agenda setting, decision making, coalition building, and policy implementation a distinguished team of experts evaluate the suitability of the presidential role in meeting today's governing needs. The resulting debate makes for insightful and provocative reading. And while all contributors agree that change would be beneficial, final recommendations run the gamut from advocating minor to radical change.
