More About the Author

Andrew Rudalevige was born in Philadelphia but grew up in the Boston suburbs, where he learned to love the ocean, the T, and, at great cost to his emotional stability, the Red Sox. He went to Watertown High School and then to the University of Chicago. After graduation he worked in the Massachusetts State Senate and on political campaigns, spending a term himself on the Watertown Town Council, before going back to do graduate work in political science at Harvard University.

Receiving his PhD in 2000, he taught at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. In the fall of 2012 he joined the faculty of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, where he is Thomas Brackett Reed Professor of Government.

Rudalevige was a fellow at Princeton University's Center for the Study of Democratic Politics in 2004-05. From 2007 to 2009, he served as the director of Dickinson's humanities study abroad program in London and Norwich, England, and as a visiting professor at the University of East Anglia. In fall 2011 he taught at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques at the University of Lyon, France.

His current research & writing projects address questions of policy implementation and the president's ability to direct it. Book projects on various aspects of the president's role as "chief executive," as well as the presidency of Ronald Reagan, are in progress.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Brian Wren on January 25, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On a recent trip to Britain I read this book - and recently re-read its fine concluding chapter. I read for general interest, not as a student (or else I would have been taking copious notes!). It is beautifully researched, well organized, cogently argued, well written and illuminating, especially in this critical election year. The historical sweep is invaluable and the book as a whole transcends the academic arenas of textbook and tenure. It describes the necessity, advantages and dangers of the strong office the American Presidency has become, why the House and Senate have become systemically weak in relation to it and why only a vigilant electorate can bring about change - so that we do not continue to have an invisible Congress and an Imperial President.
