About this title:

Synopsis: This work provides analyses by political scientists of President Clinton's performance in an era of divided government. Among the frustrations identified by this group of observers are Clinton's failure to define or adhere to his agenda as a "New Democrat", continuing problems caused by his management style and character issues, and his inability to end the gridlock between the presidency and Congress, even with the Democratic majorities in both houses of Congress during his first two years in office. The book assesses the Clinton presidency at mid-term, including the separation-of-powers system, the President's team, relations with Congress, the courts, the executive branch, political parties, interest groups, public opinion, domestic and foreign policies, and presidential leadership. A final, summary chapter considers the results of the 1994 midterm elections and the prospects for the future.

From Publishers Weekly: Four years ago, the editors offered a midterm evaluation of the Bush presidency. Now, in this anthology, a dozen political scientists assess the successes and failures of the Clinton presidency and the structural obstacles Clinton faced upon entering office. The contributors look critically at Clinton's reliance on public opinion polls, his management of the White House, his inclination to try to please too many conflicting interest groups and his foreign policy, but they are more forgiving of his inability to loosen Congressional gridlock and even praise his handling of the economy. The essays are somewhat repetitive, as several contributors rehearse the same events of Clinton's first two years in office to illustrate their points about his governing style. This brand of political science is only two steps removed from journalism. Unfortunately, those steps appear to be accessibility and lively writing, while the play-by-play approach of some of the contributors sometimes obscures the big picture. Still, the anthology's exhaustiveness makes it useful for anyone trying to make sense of Clinton's struggles in office.
