Understanding the presidency by James P Pfiffner( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Updated with new readings on the war in Iraq, the war on terror, the frontloaded nomination process, and President Bush's place in history, the new edition of this popular reader gives students the analytical tools needed to make sense of the modern presidency and its relationship with other key players in our political system. The selections in this reader were chosen with two aims in mind: (1) to provide a historical perspective, so often neglected in similar texts, that explains how the events of the past two centuries led us to where we are today, and (2) to present the most important current issues that are shaping the Bush administration and the presidency more broadly. This collection of readings offers students a combination of "classic" scholarly analyses, the best of current scholarship, and engaging insights into the nature of the contemporary presidency

The character factor : how we judge America's presidents by James P Pfiffner( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this consideration of "the character factor" and the presidency, veteran political analyst James P. Pfiffner leads us through a survey of three aspects of presidential character that have proved problematic for recent chief executives: lies, promise-keeping, and sexual probity. His goal is not to tell us which presidents have been "good" and which "bad." Rather, he helps us think critically and impartially about complex character issues and invites us to reach our own conclusions." "The Character Factor avoids both moral judgments and cynicism. It helps us look at our presidents (and our presidential candidates) without illusions, knowing that flawed men can still be great leaders but that some flaws deserve defeat at the polls - or even the ultimate presidential sanction, impeachment."--Jacket
