Description - Guardian of the Presidency by Matthew J. Dickinson
As America's leading expert on the presidency and an adviser to presidents
from Harry S Truman to Bill Clinton, Richard E. Neustadt was "the most penetrating analyst of power since Machiavelli," as Guardian of the Presidency
makes clear. Neustadt's highly acclaimed book examining the decisionmaking
process at the highest levels of government was first published in 1960 under
the title Presidential Power.
In this inspirational book, Neustadt's former colleagues and students celebrate the rich and diverse contributions he made to political and academic life in the United States and beyond.
