The American Presidency by Charles O. Jones

Presidential authority Charles O. Jones provides a marvelously concise survey of the American presidency that’s packed with surprising observations about the way assertive leaders enhanced presidential power and how such factors as philosophy, relations with Congress, and outside events have all influenced presidential authority. He also sheds light on the political process of selecting presidents, from the days of the deadlocked conventions to the rise of the primary system after World War II.
