Overview

Fred Greenstein has been a paragon of scholarship and practical advice in his many years of work on the presidency. Here, some of the leading scholars of the presidency and leadership studies come together to pay tribute to Greenstein and his work. Original essays reflect the broad sweep of Greenstein's scholarship from the systematic study of personality and politics to the analysis of chief executives from Woodrow Wilson on. The essayists pay special attention to the political styles, advisory systems, and decision-making processes of presidents from the 1920s to today. In his studies of the American presidency, Greenstein pioneered the use of archival documents to test hypotheses and illuminate issues that bear on the performance of the modern executive office. The distinguished list of contributors to this volume include John Burke, Robert A. Dahl, Alexander and Juliette George, Betty Glad, Alonzo Hamby, Erwin Hargrove, John Kessel, Anthony King, Kenneth Kitts, J. Donald Moon, and Fred Greenstein's first and last graduate students at Princeton—Larry Berman and Meena Bose. Greenstein himself generously writes a new essay on 'Plumbing the Presidential Psyche,' adding to his substantial contributions to political psychology.

Throughout his career, Professor Greenstein has produced path-breaking and insightful scholarship on the presidency. Among his notable books are The Hidden-Hand Presidency, Leadership in the Modern Presidency, How Presidents Test Reality, and The Presidential Difference. His work appeals to interested citizens as well as academics. That journalists from such esteemed publications as The New York Times and Time Magazine frequently turn to him for comment reflects his ability to clearly and thoughtfully communicate about the American presidency.
