Bridging the constitutional divide : inside the White House Office of Legislative Affairs by White House Congressional Affairs Symposium( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bridging the Constitutional Divide: Inside the White House Office of Legislative Affairs is sure to fascinate, and even to entertain, scholars, students, and general readers interested in the ever-shifting relationship of the presidency to the legislative branch." "In September 2003, seven former heads of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs gathered for the first time ever to compare their experiences working for every president from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton. For two days, these congressional liaisons, charged with moving their respective presidents' legislative agendas through an independent--and sometimes hostile--Congress, shared first-hand views of the intricacies of presidential-congressional relations: how it works, how it doesn't work, and the fascinating interplay of personalities, events, and politics that happens along the way." "This two-day seminar, hosted by noted presidential scholar Russell Riley and the University of Virginia's Miller Center of Public Affairs, also featured a number of invited scholars of American politics, including the eminent Richard E. Neustadt, who appeared just before his death a month later. The event was thus a rare opportunity for academics and practitioners to sit at the same table to explore together the exercise of presidential leadership." "As explained by Riley,"...these discussions enlighten in two ways: they provide us a revealing glimpse into the inside, usually hidden, business of Washington, and they afford us the considered reflections of a thoughtful group of political veterans." What makes these exchanges especially compelling, however, is their bipartisan cast, with Republicans Max L. Friedersdorf, William L. Ball III, and Frederick McClure joining Democrats Frank Moore, Charles M. Brain, John Hilley, and Lawrence Stein in thoughtful and friendly conversation."--BOOK JACKET
42 : inside the Presidency of Bill Clinton by Michael Nelson( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book uses hundreds of hours of newly opened interviews and other sources to illuminate the life and times of the nation's forty-second president, Bill Clinton. Combining the authoritative perspective of these inside accounts with the analytic powers of some of America?s most distinguished presidential scholars, the essays assembled here offer a major advance in our collective understanding of the Clinton White House. Included are path-breaking chapters on the major domestic and foreign policy initiatives of the Clinton years, as well as objective discussions of political success and failure. "42" is the first book to make extensive use of previously closed interviews collected for the Clinton Presidential History Project, conducted by the Presidential Oral History Program of the University of Virginia?s Miller Center. These interviews, recorded by teams of scholars working under a veil of strict confidentiality, explored officials? memories of their service with President Clinton and their careers prior to joining the administration. Interviewees also offered political and leadership lessons they had gleaned as eyewitnesses to and shapers of history. Their spoken recollections provide invaluable detail about the inner history of the presidency in an age when personal diaries and discursive letters are seldom written

Governing at home : the White House and domestic policymaking( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking book on White House domestic policymaking is the first to draw upon both the experiences of former presidential advisers and the expertise of leading presidency scholars to explain how policies reflect campaign promises, emerge and evolve, and are sold to the American people. Covering six administrations from Richard Nixon through George W. Bush, with ample references to Barack Obama, it interweaves those insider and outsider perspectives to convey an eye-opening understanding of the policymaking process and the factors that influence it. The contributors here offer an unusual balance of practical wisdom and social science knowledge. Their insights address a number of key questions throughout the book: what role does the presidential campaign have in shaping the subsequent activity of the White House? How are the specifics of domestic policy, and priorities, established once a president is elected? Who, and what, is routinely involved in trying to sell domestic policy preferences to the American people? And what lessons can be learned from past successes and failures to enhance the ability of future presidents to succeed?

Inside the Clinton White House an oral history by Russell L Riley( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President Bill Clinton led a remarkably productive White House that nearly ended in catastrophic failure. Yet because of the office's traditional climate of confidentiality, many details of his behind-the-scenes activities-including successes and failures-have remained absent from the written record, until now. How did the administration manage the horrific conflicts in Haiti and the Balkans that came to a head shortly after the president took the oath' How did he help bring peace to Northern Ireland, taking the initiative over the objections of his own State Department and attorney general' What motivated the president to place First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at the helm of the ill-fated Health Security Act in 1993' And how did the president's closest confidantes and aides respond to the outbreak of the devastating scandal that resulted in his impeachment'Inside the Clinton White House offers an intimate perspective on these questions and many more, granting readers unprecedented access to the sensitive Oval Office banter that changed the course of history. Bringing together material from 400 hours of candid conversations with over sixty individuals, respected oral historian Russell L. Riley weaves this illuminating testimony with important contextual information to form an irresistible narrative, taking the listener from Clinton's first potential White House bid in 1988 to the final days of his controversial public career. Extended sections of the book are devoted to important domestic and foreign policy campaigns, the complicated politics of the president's two terms and impeachment, and portraits of important personalities in the administration, including Vice President Al Gore and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. These forthright and often surprising accounts-including here, for the first time, observations from a new interview with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair-add a layer of nuance to an iconic figure in America's recent history, in the words of the people who knew him best
