In The Paradoxes of the American Presidency, two prize-winning presidential scholars, Thomas E. Cronin and Michael A. Genovese, explore the complex institution of the American presidency by presenting a series of paradoxes that shape and define the office. Rewritten and updated to reflect recent political events--including the controversial presidency of George W. Bush, the vice presidency of Dick Cheney, the presidency of Barack Obama, and the 2010 and 2012 elections--this must-read fourth edition incorporates findings from the latest scholarship, recent elections and court cases, and essential survey research.
