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.
Reviews about The American Presidency: An Analytical Approach (2):
Agrainel
The study of the American Presidency has been conducted, both well and poorly, for a long time by political scientists, but seldom, if ever, with an analytical approach. Irwin Morris attempts this in this book, not always perfectly. However, this book opens up a discussion for students of the Presidency: how can you analyze the office and the people who occupy it when conditions that presidents operate under are constantly changing? In my studies of the office, I have tended to think that electing a president is pretty much a crap-shoot: voters do not know much about the candidates, the candidates campaign in clichés, and the winners are often subject to pressures and conditions that no one expected that distracts their original agenda (cases in point, 9/11 and how it completely altered the Bush agenda, or the gridlock that has prevailed since Obama was elected). Morris's book illuminates some possible ways to make sense of a presidency.
