The American Presidency : An Analytical Approach, Paperback / softback Book

The American Presidency : An Analytical Approach Paperback / softback


Presidential scholars increasingly turn to science to address the fundamental issues in the field, but undergraduates are rarely taught the skills to do the same.

The American Presidency introduces students to new insights produced by the scientific study of the presidency and the scientific endeavor itself.

After chapters on the scientific study of the presidency and background information on the presidency, the text discusses prominent theories of presidential power.

Chapters on presidential elections, the president's relationship with other political actors (such as Congress and the Supreme Court), the president's role in foreign and economic policy, and presidential greatness include guided research exercises that provide students with the opportunity to apply the scientific method to empirical questions with significant theoretical content.

The American Presidency provides students with the opportunity to learn about the presidency and enables them to draw their own reasoned conclusions about the nature of presidential power.
