Editorial Reviews

Review

“If the embryo of the modern presidency is found in the Constitution, its maturation traces to the turn of the twentieth century. In this ambitious book, Farrar-Myers applies historical institutionalism to explore cases in domestic and foreign policy from Cleveland to Wilson to illuminate how ‘coordinated scripting’ between president and Congress shaped both the structure and behavior of these institutions. Her cases are compelling, her analysis trenchant, and her conclusions revealing for what they say about the contemporary presidency and Congress. This is a thoughtful and important book.”--Robert J. Spitzer, SUNY Cortland
(Robert J. Spitzer, SUNY Cortland)
