Description:

The historic election of Barack Obama has ushered in a new era of hope and optimism across America. However, can Obama--or any President--live up to the incredibly high expectations that we have of our presidents? Elegantly written, timely, and easily accessible to students, the third edition of The Paradoxes of the American Presidency considers this crucial question and many more. Two highly esteemed presidential scholars, Thomas E. Cronin and Michael A. Genovese, explore the complex institution of the American Presidency by presenting a series of paradoxes that shape and define the office. Thoroughly updated and revised to reflect recent political events--from the attacks of 9/11, to the war on terrorism and the controversial eight-year George W. Bush presidency, to the economic meltdown of 2008 and the election of Barack Obama--the third edition incorporates findings from the latest scholarship, the most recent elections and court cases, and relevant survey research.
