What People are saying about this

Bruce L. Miroff

Showing us the presidency in a whole new light, Skowronek illuminates the patterns of presidential politics from the earliest chief executives to administrations yet to come. His bold analyses of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush are superior to anything else out there. (Bruce L. Miroff, author of The Liberals' Moment)

Ron Brownstein

Nobody unearths the hidden patterns in American political history like Stephen Skowronek. With this brilliant new work, he scans the centuries to illuminate the dynamics that have made some presidents the master of political time—and others its victim. (Ron Brownstein, Los Angeles Times national affairs columnist)

Richard Ellis

A brilliant, provocative reading of presidential history that sparkles with originality and insight. (Richard Ellis, author of Founding the American Presidency)
