The presidency in a separated system by Charles O Jones( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows how a separated system of government works under the circumstances created by the Constitution and encouraged by a two-party system. Jones examines the organizational challenges facing presidents, their public standing and what it means, presidential agendas and mandates, and lawmaking - how it works, where the president fits in, and how it varies from issue to issue. He compares the post-World War II presidents and identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each in working within the separated system. Jones proposes a view of government that accepts divided government as a legitimate, even productive, form of decisionmaking and emphasizes the varying strategies available to presidents for governing. He concludes with a number of important lessons for presidents and advice on how to make the separated system work better

The expansion of executive powers amid the war on terrorism has brought the presidency to the center of heated public debate. Now, in this book, presidential authority Charles O. Jones provides invaluable background to the current controversy, in a compact, reliable guide to the office of the chief executive. This survey is packed with information about the presidency, for example, that the Founders adopted the word "president" over "governor" and other alternatives because it suggested a light hand, as in one who presides, rather than rules. Indeed, the Constitutional Convention first agreed to a weak chief executive elected by congress for one seven-year term, later calling for independent election and separation of powers. Jones sheds much light on how assertive leaders, such as Andrew Jackson, Theodore Roosevelt, and FDR enhanced the power of the presidency, and illuminates how such factors as philosophy (Reagan's anti-Communist conservatism), the legacy of previous presidencies (Jimmy Carter following Watergate), relations with Congress, and the impact of outside events have all influenced presidential authority. He also explores the rise of federal power and the dramatic expansion of federal agencies, showing how the president takes a direct hand in this vast bureaucracy, and he examines the political process of selecting presidents, from the days of deadlocked conventions to the rise of the primary after World War II. "In 200 years," he writes, "the presidency had changed from that of a person, Washington followed by Adams, then Jefferson, to a presidential enterprise with a cast of thousands." Jones explains how this remarkable expansion has occurred and where it may lead in the future

Clinton and Congress, 1993-1996 : risk, restoration, and reelection by Charles O Jones( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Clinton was first elected in 1992, he fell into a familiar trap - the tendency of elected officials to take more responsibility for their proposed changes than can be institutionally or politically justified. Many of Clinton's initiatives, including his bold health-care program, were thwarted in Congress by the Republicans, who proceeded to capture majorities in both the Senate and the House of Representatives in the 1994 elections. The new Republican Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, then similarly miscalculated - by inviting responsibility for his Contract with America. Like Clinton, Gingrich raised expectations in spite of marginal political advantages. He also miscalculated the president's capacity for recovery."--Jacket

"This volume presents Neustadt's previously unpublished memos to Kennedy along with later memos he wrote for Ronald Reagan, Michael Dukakis, and Bill Clinton and advice for the next President of the United States. In this volume, the man Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., calls "our most brilliant commentator on the Presidency" reveals for the first time how he came to advise the various Presidents-elect and candidates. In addition, editor Charles O. Jones offers a critical analysis of the memos and an insightful bibliographic essay on the relationship between the Neustadt memos and the transition memos that others have written."--Jacket
Midterm : the elections of 1994 in context( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By all accounts, 1994 represents sweeping electoral and policy change rarely seen in any American election, let alone in midterm. This book puts 1994 in context with other significant midterm elections, from 1810 to the present. It also captures the very contemporary concerns unique to 1994: the role of the religious right, the "angry white male," the Contract with America, and the overall tenor of antipathy as voters turned out (or not) to show the Clinton administration what they thought of its first two years. This collection of original essays by noted political scientists gives us the first thoughtful analysis of the 1994 election results and prepares us to anticipate the certain drama and import of the elections of 1996
