Presidency and Political System - 8th edition

Presidency and Political System (ISBN10: 156802875X; ISBN13: 9781568028750)
ISBN13: 978-1568028750
ISBN10: 156802875X

Summary: This thoroughly revised edition features thought-provoking original essays, written by some of the field's most prominent scholars, and reflects the best in presidential scholarship. The eighth edition combines new and time-tested essays to revisit the themes of presidential power and perceptions. With four new readings and significant updating by returning contributors, students learn how recent political developments influence the executive branch, and how these de
velopments in turn shape the media, interest groups, political parties, bureaucrats, and others who move in the presidential orbit.

Michael Nelson has put together another winning combination of classic pieces--including chapters by Tulis, Skowronek, Quirk, Miroff, Burke, and Milkis--and new essays, from David Lewis on bureaucracy to Andrew Polsky on war powers to Andrew Rudalevige on the cabinet. Ever conscious that the office has been powerfully shaped by history, each author offers context and insight while ensuring that theoretical ideas and perspectives are explored, developed, and clearly explained. The eighth edition of this widely anticipated collection once again proves to be the most balanced and compelling look at our nation's highest office.
