American Presidency: Origins and Development, 1776-1998

American Presidency: Origins and Development, 1776-1998

by Sidney M. Milkis, Michael Nelson

Editorial Reviews

The 1991 edition won that year's Benjamin Franklin Award for History, Politics, and Philosophy. Milkis (politics, Brandeis U.) and Nelson (political science, Rhodes College) examine the constitutional precepts that underlie the US presidency and the social, economic, political, and international conditions that continue to shape it. They argue that the modern power of the presidency, attributed by most to Franklin D. Roosevelt, actually goes back to the time of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Annotation c.
