Summary

The modern president must take on and fulfill multiple roles if he is to successfully command and lead. Chief executive, head of state, commander-in-chief, legislative manager, and party leader are a few of the president's responsibilities, each of which rely more on skilled political leadership than on an assertion of constitutional privileges. This has surely been the case for George W. Bush in the aftermath of 9/11 and up through the elections of 2004. His win and four more years in the White House--along with GOP gains in Congress--give this president an opportunity to fundamentally alter domestic policy as well as ameliorate the situation in Iraq. What will the elections of 2004 and Bush's second term say about the future of his presidency, of Republican dominance, of his legacy?

In the most up-to-date core text on the presidency, Pika and Maltese deliver comprehensive and engaging analysis of the increasingly political nature of the presidency, while artfully balancing the historical foundations of the office. Coverage includes analysis of the 2004 campaign and election, further scrutiny of the war on terror, a close look at Bush's new cabinet, and measured assessment of Bush's impact on the judiciary and the domestic agenda. The elections and judiciary chapters along with the epilogue will be thoroughly updated in this revised sixth edition.

As always, count on The Politics of the Presidency for in-depth assessment of the institution, the individuals who have served, the president's interactions with the public, and his impact on public policy.
