Description
Starting from the inception of the office, The American Presidency examines the constitutional precepts of the presidency and the social, economic, political, and international factors that have continued to shape it ever since. In this revised and updated sixth edition, Milkis and Nelson update all chapters in light of new scholarship and include the end of Bush's tenure, and in a new chapter, explore Obama's first two years in office. Each presidency is treated succinctly, with attention to how individual presidents shaped the executive, conveying a developmental arc of the modern presidency. By emphasizing patterns of presidential conduct, this award-winning book offers perspective on the expansion of presidential powers over the years.
