The Evolving American Presidency

Series Editor: Michael Genovese

The Evolving American Presidency Series recognizes that the Presidency is and has been an evolving institution, going from the original constitutional design as a Chief Clerk, to today where the president is the center of the American political constellation. This has caused several key dilemmas in our political system, not the least of which is that presidents face high expectations with limited constitutional resources. This causes presidents to find extra-constitutional means of governing. Thus, presidents must find ways to bridge the expectations/power gap while operating within the confines of a separation-of-powers system designed to limit presidential authority. How presidents resolve these challenges and paradoxes is the central issue in modern governance and the central theme of this book series. 

Michael A. Genovese is Professor of Political Science and Loyola Chair of Leadership Studies, and Director of the Institute for Leadership Studies at Loyola Marymount University.
