Overview

THE MODERN PRESIDENCY is a concise, accessible and sophisticated text that uses cases to illustrate important aspects of presidential action and decision-making. Written by a top scholar on the presidency and thoroughly updated through the summer of 2009 to include the presidency of Barack Obama, the book looks at presidents as individuals and at the large institutions that make up the modern presidency.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Modern Presidency is a fine book for covering the institutional presidency and providing historical context of the modern presidency....Perhaps most important, The Modern Presidency is built on a foundation of scholarship but updated with more journalistic accounts interpreted by Pfiffner, who integrates recent events into a long-standing framework." Wayne Steger, DePaul University

"Students who read this book will emerge with a working knowledge of the office and the tools to understand its evolving role and place in our nation....This book is a winner in every way!"David Gray Adler, Idaho State University

"The integration of detail into thematic chapters was impressive to me." -Julia R. Azari, Marquette University

Booknews
Pfiffner (government and public policy, George Mason U.) portrays the presidency as being not so much the president himself, but the numerous people and institutions that support him. Concentrating on the era of the modern presidency (1933 to the present), he explains how what was once a small group of presidential advisors has grown into a large collection of bureaucracies, and how White House staffers have gradually replaced Cabinet secretaries as primary advisors to the president.
