about this item

Pika, Maltese and Rudalevige describe how US presidents govern the country and the government, considering the presidency as essentially a political office--that is, the chief executive must govern more through skilled political leadership than through the assertion of constitutional prerogatives, though the latter are gaining in significance as politics in Washington become more intractable, they say. Looking in turn at the public, the government, and public policy, they discuss such topics as election politics, presidential character and performance, legislative politics, the politics of domestic policy, and politics of national security policy, and the challenges and opportunities of a new president.
