Presidential Personality and Performance
Drawing heavily on Wilson materials, early chapters of this book examine the relevance of psychoanalytic theory and the use of other psychodynamic approaches to case materials. Chapter 4 is the Georges' reply - published here in full for the first time - to a critical review of their work by historian Arthur S. Link and two of his colleagues. Chapter 5 discusses methods of writing psychobiography and assessing presidential character, including the psychological suitability of candidates for the office. The concluding chapter analyzes the presidential management styles of FDR, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, JFK, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and Bill Clinton.
