Overview

This new and extensively revised third edition of The Presidency A to Z gives students and citizens an invaluable tool for understanding the presidency and appraising how it has responded to the challenges and opportunities facing the nation. By explaining the origins, powers, and limitations of the office and the executive branch, this book puts into perspective George W. Bush's administration and its policies and takes a longer-term look at the Clinton administration. This new edition provides comprehensive, accessible treatment of such new topics as the controversial 2000 election; the focus on eradicating terrorism; the establishment of a new executive department on homeland security; and the Bush administration's domestic and foreign policies. Entries on the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, impeachment, the Clinton administration in its final days, and campaign finance reform have been expanded. New biographies profile significant new figures, including George W. Bush, Laura Bush, Richard B. Cheney, Joseph I. Lieberman, and Donald H. Rumsfeld. The Presidency A to Z offers all the basic information readers need to understand the presidency historically and today. The Presidency A to Z includes all the features that made earlier editions so popular: charts, tables, lists, photographs, cartoons, an index, a bibliography, and cross-references.
