From Our Editors

How presidents lead--or fail to--is the central concern of this pointed analysis of political leadership in America. Beginning with a solid theoretical examination of the political leadership, Kellerman moves on to assess the nature of presidential power under America's six most recent administrations and considers the way each president handled the most important item on his domestic agenda. She argues that in America there is an equation between leadership and 'politicking, ' which is why great politicians and great leaders tend to be one and the same.

Editorial Reviews

"Penetrating in analysis, clear in focus, wise in judgment, The Political Presidency--from the pen of a rising young leader in the study of leadership--is sure to become a landmark study of our most indispensable and dangerous governmental institution."--James MacGregor Burns, WilliamsCollege
