Overview

In Presidents Creating the Presidency, Karlyn Kohrs Campbell and Kathleen Hall Jamieson expand and recast their classic Deeds Done in Words for the YouTube era, revealing how our media-saturated age has transformed the ever-evolving rhetorical strategies that presidents use to increase and sustain the powers of the executive branch. Identifying the primary genres of presidential oratory, Campbell and Jamieson add new analyses of signing statements and national eulogies to their explorations of inaugural addresses, veto messages, and warrhetoric, among other types. For two centuries, these rhetorical acts have succeeded brilliantly and failed miserably at satisfying the demands of audience, occasion, and institution-and in the process, they have increased and depleted political capital by enhancing presidential authorityor ceding it to the other branches. Illuminating the reasons behind each outcome, Campbell and Jamieson draw an authoritative picture of how presidents have used rhetoric to shape the presidency-and how they continue to re-create it.

Editorial Reviews

American Political Science Review

“Campbell and Jamieson have taken another leap forward in establishing the essential relationship between rhetoric and the presidency itself. They argue successfully that the genres they have identified actually help define what the presidency is and how that office interacts with the other branches of government and the American people.”

— on Deeds Done in Words

Choice

"This is an important, insightful consideration of rhetoric in the US presidency."
Political Communication

"An impressive and ambitious project, a close reading of which will be of enormous benefit to other scholars working in this field."

— D. M. Ryfe

David Zarefsky

Presidents Creating the Presidency updates, expands, and revitalizes its previous incarnation—the valuable Deeds Done in Words—while retaining all of its strengths, notably the accessibility of the material and the historical sweep, which now covers all the presidents from George Washington to George W. Bush. Scholars in rhetoric, politics, and presidency studies will read this work with profit.”

Roderick Hart

“In this book, two fine scholars detail how rhetoric gives presidents supra-Constitutional powers and what happens as a result.  Although chock-full of facts, Presidents Creating the Presidency retains a subtlety befitting the nuanced institution it seeks to describe.  To fully understand the dynamics of political power, one must know what this book knows.”
