Written by two renowned presidential scholars, this comprehensive, best-selling text examines all aspects of the presidency in rich detail.

Taking a theoretical approach, the authors use engaging analysis and timely, fascinating examples to view the presidency from two theoretical standpoints--the president as "facilitator," and the president as "director of change."
