Overview

THE MODERN PRESIDENCY, Fifth Edition, is a concise, accessible and sophisticated text on the presidency. Case studies-a major strength of this short text-illustrate important aspects of presidential action and decision-making. Written by a top scholar on the presidency, and thoroughly updated through 2006 to include the presidency of George W. Bush, the text deals not only with presidents as individuals, but also with the large institutions that make up the modern presidency.

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.
