The paradoxes of the American presidency by Thomas E Cronin( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 1,497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What exactly do Americans want from their president? A strong, innovative leader or someone who simply follows the will of the people? A president who insists on the ideals of a party or someone who builds bipartisan support? A president who exercises power forcefully or someone who establishes consensus before doing anything? The answer, according to Thomas E. Cronin and Michael A. Genovese in their new book, The Paradoxes of the American Presidency, is that Americans want the president to be a leader and a follower, partisan and bipartisan, innovative and conservative. For example, we expect our presidents to provide visionary leadership, and yet at the same time to be ever-sensitive to public opinion polls. We want a president with the power to solve the nation's problems, yet we are inherently suspicious of centralized leadership and the abuse of power. Such conflicting demands put the president in an often impossible position. Indeed, Cronin and Genovese contend the duties and challenges of the office are so capacious and the public's expectations often so inconsistent that whatever course of action a president takes may result in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" kind of criticism. While there is no easy way out of the constant paradoxical dilemmas presidents face, there are ways to deal with these conflicting and sometimes inflated expectations. Yet even master political statecraft is often inadequate in reconciling the paradoxes of the American presidency

Presidential prerogative : imperial power in an age of terrorism by Michael A Genovese( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the aftermath of the tragic September 11, 2001 attacks against the United States, the Bush administration acted boldly and often unilaterally to thwart terrorism at home and abroad. At the time, the President's actions were legitimized by claims that the President had broad constitutional powers in the areas of war and foreign policy. These claims were bolstered in a series of the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel memos claiming that the President's actions in this area were "nonreviewable" by other branches. The subject of widespread debate and outrage, the legal rationales offered seemed to violate the concept of checks and balances built into the United States Constitution

A presidential nation : causes, consequences, and cures by Michael A Genovese( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial. Why do we devote monuments to the presidents? Why do we honor them, instead of Congress or the courts? A Presidential Nation examines how the presidency--an office limited by the Constitution and separation of powers--became the centerpiece of American government. Michael A. Genovese argues that in rebelling against the British, the Framers of the Constitution invented a circumscribed presidency to guard against executive tyranny. Yet, over time, presidential power has risen and congressional power declined to a point where the United States has a near imperial presidency. Reexamining the status of presidential power in the post-9/11 world, Dr. Genovese considers the alternatives, if any, to the current model of presidential power. A Presidential Nation is perfect for courses on American presidency and federal governance or for anyone interested in the changing authority of the American political system

The rise of presidential power poses a significant threat to America's democratic values. This book explores the reasons for and implications of the rising power of the presidency. The rise of presidential power poses a significant threat to America s democratic values. It is clear that the tectonic plates of the American political system are gravitating towards a model of presidential government not envisioned and, in fact, precluded by the constitutional design of the framers of the United States Constitution. As the presidency eclipses Congress, the courts in power, and public/media attention, the balance of powers has tilted. In this accessible book, leading scholars explore the reasons for and implications of the rising power of the presidency
Catholics and politics : the dynamic tension between faith and power by Kristin E Heyer( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catholic political identity and engagement defy categorization. The complexities of political realities and the human nature of such institutions as church and government often produce a more fractured reality than the pure unity depicted in doctrine. Yet, in 2003 under the leadership of then-prefect Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued a Doctrinal Note on Some Questions Regarding the Participation of Catholics in Political Life. The note explicitly asserts, The Christian faith is an integral unity, and thus it is incoherent t

11 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The presidency and domestic policy : comparing leadership styles, FDR to Obama by Michael A Genovese( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each president brings to the White House a distinct set of personal characteristics and a preferred leadership style, but just how much have individual presidents shaped domestic policy? To understand and assess what factors determine one president's success and another's limited accomplishments, it is important to examine both the individual's leadership roles and the circumstances that shape opportunities for success. This book systematically examines the first terms of every president from FDR to Obama and assesses leadership style, the policy agenda, and the "political opportunity" facing each president. The success of each president in bringing about landmark legislation and other policy change is shown to hinge on the opportunities facing each president, his leadership style, and finally, his skill managing a variety of institutional and public relationships. Not all presidents are created equal, but some can implement strategies to overcome formidable obstacles, rising into the vaunted ranks of the "Great Presidents." The second edition of this timely book adds chapters on George W. Bush and Barack Obama and focuses on the significant domestic policy challenges of their respective times. Tax cuts, education policy, and homeland security are featured for the Bush era, while health care reform, economic policy initiatives, immigration, and gun control are highlights for Obama. Both offer insights into contemporary presidential leadership in a highly partisan age. In addition, the authors have reconfigured the analytical framework of the book to take into account the "dynamic opportunity structure" that emerged during the George W. Bush administration."--Publisher's description

The presidency and the Constitution : cases and controversies by Michael A Genovese( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive book examines the evolution of judicial interpretation of the scope and limitations of presidential power. From interbranch struggles for power, to presidential selection, to campaign financing, to war powers, hardly an issue arises for the modern presidency that does not eventually find itself framed as a legal problem to be addressed by the courts. Each section begins with an introduction providing background and framework for students. Throughout, the analysis is informed by the view that court decisions are framed by legal arguments and constitute legal issuances, and are also framed by politics, and have profound political consequences

Good leadership does not come from a majic pill, but from hard work, discipline and focused practice"--
