The Politics of the Presidency
Now updated to include the first six months of the second Clinton term, this book focuses on how presidents govern and how they fulfill their multitude of obligations -- both in Washington and beyond.
The authors view the presidency as a highly changeable office in which political savvy is more important than governance. They also analyze the institution, the individuals who have served, their interaction with the public and with other governmental branches, and their impact on public policy.
An in-depth case study of Bill Clinton explores the relationship between his personality and background and his performance in office.
