At the President's side : the vice presidency in the twentieth century ( Book )
7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in this book trace the evolution of the vice presidency in the twentieth century from Theodore Roosevelt to Dan Quayle. The first five chapters tell the stories of a colorful collection of the men chosen because of their native states or their political acumen, but not their leadership abilities. The next four chapters form a mosaic of tragedy. Richard Nixon rose from the vice presidency to the presidency only to be forced from office. Lyndon Johnson's tenure ended unhappily because of the prolonged fighting in Vietnam. Hubert Humphrey was humiliated as vice president by a man who should have known better. And Spiro Agnew was rousted from the office by petty greed. The following four chapters tell the story of a new vice presidency. Nelson Rockefeller, Walter Mondale, George Bush, and Dan Quayle redefined the job that not many people wanted but that few could refuse. In a particularly valuable essay. Quayle reflects on the checkered past of his predecessors, gives credit to Walter Mondale for rehabilitating the vice presidency, and tells of his working relationship with George Bush - offering a unique glimpse of an office that is quickly becoming the second most powerful in the nation. Addressing the future of the office, Richard E. Neustadt provides a detailed analysis of the nucleus of vice presidential power - proximity to the president. To whit, we have Neustadt's maxim: "The power and influence of a vice president is inversely proportional to the political distance between that vice president and his president. The greater the distance the less the power."

"This volume offers core selections from and analysis of primary source materials documenting the uneasy collaboration between two iconic Republican US presidents, Herbert Hoover and Dwight Eisenhower. Given their shared conservative philosophy and similar criticisms of the bloated excesses of the New Deal, one might assume that the two men had a warm relationship, but their interactions were overwhelmingly formal and exhibited little in the way of collegiality and warmth. Nonetheless, they found ample opportunity to work together in common cause in the years after World War II, and discussed much of contemporary relevance, from the contentious 1952 Republican nomination fight to the establishment of the second Hoover Commission to reorganize the Executive Branch to Hoover's last official assignment on behalf of the US as representative to the 1958 World's Fair. Included here are letters, reports, and telegrams that the two men sent directly to one another; diary entries and memoranda that document their meetings; relevant passages from speeches and press commentary; and candid comments that the two men made about each other in letters to friends and associates"--Provided by publisher
