Editorial Reviews

Review

"A commentary on the modern and evolving relationship between the American presidency and Congress. Key struggles between the two consitutional powers are highlighted and discussed, sometimes with analytical appreciation, and other times with entertaining and illuminating anecdotes."



"Many of the observations are priceless kernels of political wisdom, and are delivered with authority given the years of experience which accompany them."



"Scholars of the presidency and Congress will enjoy this volume, and may utilize its stories and observations as empirical building blocks for more theoretical pursuits."



"Any interested observer of American politics will find it easily accessible, insightful, and politically relevant"

(Colleen J. Shogan American University Library 2011-10-19)

"A commentary on the modern and evolving relationship between the American presidency and Congress. Key struggles between the two constitutionl powers are highlighted and discussed, someitmes with analytical appreciation, and other times with entertaining and illuminating anecdotes."



"The book covers a wide range of topics. The duties of serving as a CL are front and center, along with the primary goal of getting the president's program passed on the Hill.  The participants discussed at length the difficulties of maintaining a semblance of party discipline in Congress, including a revealing conversation about how presidents attempt to influence close floor votes."



"Many of the observations are priceless kernels of political wisdom, and are delievered with authority given the years of experience which accompany them."
