Overview

With the end of the Cold War, U.S. presidential leadership has become both more important and more difficult. Post-war periods have historically posed challenges to leadership, and this time around the long-time image of the 'leader of the free world' has declined in the face of globalization and increased interdependence among nations. It is exactly this complex environment that makes Americans look ever more to their president for guidance. This accessibly-written volume discusses socio-cultural, political, and economic changes during and after the Cold War period and how these have affected modern presidential leadership. Prominent contributors cover key issues_image and character, domestic and foreign policy, distraction theory, domestic and international economics, executive/legislative relations, security/intelligence, executive dominance, and activist government_and suggest strategies for helping to ensure a strong presidency in the future.

Editorial Reviews

Millennium
A diverse, edifying, and timely collection of essays which provide scholarly insight on the American presidency since the end of the Cold War. The editors have done an admirable job in taking such seemingly disparate essay topics and organizing them in a coherent manner. These essays provide excellent analysis of the topic, and through their eclectic nature, reflect the diversity of approaches taken towards understanding this institution that has been influenced by the end of the Cold War.
Thomas E. Cronin
The American presidency is a unique, necessary, and always potentially dangerous institution. In addition, it is an especially fragile institution and it is, as we are reminded again in these essays, a constantly changing institution. . . . Anthony Eksterowicz and Glenn Hastedt have gathered a series of informative and in some cases provocative articles that help us to appreciate some of the changes that are taking place in this post–Cold War era.

In 11 papers <-->many originally published in the (issues unspecified), political scientists assess the American "globalist presidency" emerging as the US replaces the Soviet Union with foreign policy as a deflector of issues that may negatively impact the presidency (per "distraction theory"). Other topics bearing on this transforming leadership role include: the CIA in economic intelligence, executive-legislative relations, the public's priority shift from character to convenience, and parallels between the Clinton and Harding administrations in the war- to-peace transition.
