Booknews
Investigates how recent Presidents have engaged Congress on issues of domestic policy. Peterson (Government, Harvard) argues against the presidency-centered perspective on national government and contends that Congress is far more influential in crafting proposals. He identifies five types of congressional responses to the proposals submitted by the executive branch and includes an analysis of some 300 presidential initiatives. Annotation c.
