The hidden-hand presidency : Eisenhower as leader by Fred I Greenstein( Book )

19 editions published between 1982 and 1994 in English and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Eisenhower left office more than twenty years ago, he was generally regarded as the very model of an ineffective president, a benign but politically indecisive leader who reigned but did not rule. Only now, five unsuccessful presidents and a disastrous war later, are we beginning to wonder how this seemingly bumbling and inarticulate man was able to get so much done while appearing to do so little. In The Hidden-Hand Presidency, Fred I. Greenstein, one of the country's leading political scientists, shows that behind Ike's bland 'statesmanlike' exterior there was a distinctive, self-consciously articulated style of leadership. Drawing on recently declassified confidential diaries, letters, and memoranda--including evidence of a secret Eisenhower campaign to terminate Joe McCarthy's political effectiveness--Greenstein shows us an intelligent and articulate leader who knew exactly what he wanted and was prepared to work hard to get it. Time and again, in the way he rallied subordinates and isolated political opponents, in his maneuvers to win support among both isolationalist right wingers and liberal Republicans, Eisenhower proved himself a skilled politician while self-consciously projecting an uncontroversial public image."--Jacket

Children and politics by Fred I Greenstein( Book )

66 editions published between 1965 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the earliest major research works on the study of political socialization, the process by which people come to learn about politics, develop political views, and become oriented toward the political system. The book is based on the results of interviews with New Haven children [most between the ages of 9 and 13], conducted in 1958 ... [and] explores kids' feelings about political authority, their development of political information, and the roots of party identification. The volume also considers how children's views may develop somewhat differently by socioeconomic status and sex."--Steven Peterson, July 28, 2010 (Amazon.com)

The George W. Bush presidency : an early assessment( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between his inauguration and September 11, 2001, George W. Bush's presidency appeared to lack focus. The rhetoric of the campaign trail did not readily translate into concrete policies and a closely divided Congress restrained executive action. The terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, however, changed all of that. In their aftermath, Bush emerged as a strong, decisive leader with a deep sense of purpose and certainty that inspired many Americans, even as it alienated much of the rest of the world. In The George W. Bush Presidency: An Early Assessment, noted presidential scholar Fred I. Greenstein brings together a distinguished group of political scientists to consider the first two-and-a-half years of the George W. Bush presidency, from his leadership style and political ethos to his budgetary and foreign policies to his relationship with Congress, the electorate, and the American public. This balanced and timely volume concludes with an invaluable insider's view of the president and his administration by John J. DiIulio, the first Director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.--Publisher description

Inventing the job of president : leadership style from George Washington to Andrew Jackson by Fred I Greenstein( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author analyzes our first seven leaders' strengths and weaknesses in public communication, organizational capacity, political skill, policy vision, cognitive style, and emotional intelligence. Their similarities and differences support his central thesis that, at any given time, it matters who happens to be President. None has had the same personal and political skills. Greenstein's approach emphasizes particular personal strengths and weaknesses, which distinguishes this volume from works which focus more on political environment and the times in which various Presidents served. Not all Presidents are created equal, and leadership style clearly matters

Presidents and the dissolution of the Union : leadership style from Polk to Lincoln by Fred I Greenstein( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States witnessed an unprecedented failure of its political system in the mid-nineteenth century, resulting in a disastrous civil war that claimed the lives of an estimated 750,000 Americans. In his other acclaimed books about the American presidency, Fred Greenstein assesses the personal strengths and weaknesses of presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama. Here, he evaluates the leadership styles of the Civil War-era presidents. Using his trademark no-nonsense approach, Greenstein looks at the presidential qualities of James K. Polk, Zachary Taylor, Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, and Abraham Lincoln. For each president, he provides a concise history of the man's life and presidency, and evaluates him in the areas of public communication, organizational capacity, political skill, policy vision, cognitive style, and emotional intelligence. Greenstein sheds light on why Buchanan is justly ranked as perhaps the worst president in the nation's history, how Pierce helped set the stage for the collapse of the Union and the bloodiest war America had ever experienced, and why Lincoln is still considered the consummate American leader to this day. Presidents and the Dissolution of the Union reveals what enabled some of these presidents, like Lincoln and Polk, to meet the challenges of their times--and what caused others to fail"--
