Overview

"Governing the White House advances our understanding of the relationship between the White House as a political arena and its organizational structure. Walcott and Hult trace the development of functional specialization in the White House and propose a theoretically rich explanation for the organizational structures of those specializations. An indispensable book for students of the institutionalized presidency."—Peri E. Arnold, author of Making the Managerial Presidency: Comprehensive Reorganization Planning, 1905-1980

"The authors bring a relatively novel theoretical approach to bear on a subject that warrants considerable attention but is seldom exposed to rigorous analysis. Their credentials for such an effort are superb and their scholarship is of top quality."—Joseph A. Pika, author of The Politics of the American Presidency and The Presidential Contest

Author Biography: Charles E. Walcott and Karen M. Hult are associate professors of political science at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and coauthors of Governing Public Organizations.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The authors maintain that the organization of the White House influences presidential performance more than is commonly thought and that organization theory is an essential tool for understanding that influence. The first part of the book presents the theoretical argument; the second examines White House outreach, including congressional liaison, press relations, personnel selection, executive branch oversight, and interest group and intergovernmental liaison.
