Managing the Presidency

Carter, Reagan, and the Search for Executive Harmony

A brilliant book.
Social Science Quarterly

Arguing that too many studies focus on president's personalities, and not their relationships with advisers and the machinery of the office, Campbell describes the institutional development of the presidency and assesses the Carter and Regan administrations within a historical context. Interviews with senior members of the White House staff and other high-ranking officials add color and depth to his study.
