Editorial Reviews

Review

"This important book merits a wide audience."--American Political Science Review

"The definitive analytical history of comprehensive reorganization planning of the national executive branch."--Political Science Quarterly

"An ambitious book that examines the presidency's attempts to fulfill the managerial demands created by the emergence of the modern administrative state. A substantial contribution."--American Historical Review

"Students of American politics will find Arnold's perceptive account of the quest for 'a managerially effective presidency' required reading."--Canadian Review of American Studies

"A 'must' for those interested in the presidency. This book is virtually definitive on its topic."--History

"The managerial presidency, Arnold concludes, can become 'a trap, offering increased capacity . . . but creating even greater expectations about presidential performance.' A persuasive and cogent conclusion to this excellent study."--American Historical Review

"An important presentation of historical evidence, intelligently set forth. A genuine contribution to the literatures on the presidency, the executive branch, and the history of American political institutions."--Fred Greenstein, author of The Hidden Hand Presidency
