The Politics of the Presidency
Artfully balancing the historical foundations of the office with analysis of the increasingly political nature of the presidency, Pika and Maltese assess the institution, the individuals who have served, the president's interactions with the public and governing elites, and the chief executive's impact on public policy. Offering students the best of both worlds, this comprehensive text offers historical examples and context throughout, while weaving new scholarship and balanced coverage of the current Bush administration into every chapter, making The Politics of the Presidency the most current presidency text on the market.
