Richard Neustadts seminal work "Presidential Power: The Politics of Leadership" has endured for nearly four decades as the core of academic study of the American presidency. Now, building on and challenging many of the arguments in Neustadts work, "Presidential Power: Forging the Presidency for the Twenty-first Century" offers reflections and implications from what we have learned about presidential power as the new century dawns.
These essays -including a new contribution by Neustadt himself -forge a solid reexamination of Neustadts "Presidential Power" that address questions raised but not resolved by his work. A notable aspect of this volumes analysis is the transformed institution of the presidency in the wake of the impeachment hearings of the countrys last twentieth-century president, Bill Clinton. From the portrayal of presidents as persuaders to the politics of presidential transitions, each of the constituent essays in this volume provides an engaging look at the state of the American presidency.
