Power of the American Presidency, 1789-2000 by Michael A. Genovese
Book DescriptionIn its more than 200-year history, the office of the President of the United States has undergone a variety of dramatic changes. Because the founding fathers left the privileges and responsibilities of the job constitutionally vague and ill-defined, each occupant of the office - from George Washington to Bill Clinton - has tried to set the limits of presidential power as he has seen fit based on the domestic and international circumstances of the day as well as on his own ambition and abilities. In The Power of the American Presidency, Michael A. Genovese, one of the best known and respected scholars on the presidency, takes students on a journey through the personalities and politics of some of the most fascinating and at times powerful men in American history. Organized chronologically, the text offers an overview of the evolution and elasticity of presidential power by providing case studies of each president's personal characteristics and the defining historical events of each administration. From Abraham Lincoln, who stretched the boundaries of presidential power during the Civil War, to nearly forgotten presidents like Van Buren, Garfield, and Fillmore, who led weak administrations with limited power, Genovese presents the history of the country's highest office with insight, balanced judgment, and humour. The Power of the American Presidency will be widely used in undergraduate courses on the American Presidency as well as in courses on American history, American studies, and political science. It will also be of interest to anyone who wishes to gain a keener insight into the workings of the presidency.

"This book will focus on leadership: what it is, how it works, and how you might take steps towards becoming a polymath leader. Leadership is a complex, paradoxical phenomenon that is nuanced, multi- layerd and mutli- dimensional . Good leadership does not come from a majic pill, but from hard work, discipline and focused practice"--
