Description

Klappentext So you've gotten yourself elected president-now what? Help is here in the form of an imaginary memo from your former professor, who integrates the works of the great thinkers (Aristotle, Plato, Machiavelli, etc.) with contemporary scholarship to address the strengths, limitations, and possibilities of presidential leadership. Michael A. Genovese, a highly esteemed presidential scholar, culls numerous nuggets of wisdom about presidential leadership, including pastpresidents, condensing detailed and academically grounded insights into an engaging and entertaining read. All essential topics are covered, including: presidential character and personality; political institutions and opportunities; power versus leadership; and sources of and limits to presidentialpower. In-depth coverage of crisis management and wartime decision-making are unique strengths of the book. Zusammenfassung So you've gotten yourself elected president-now what?

To all incumbent presidents, presidential aspirants, and presidency watchers, my advice is to forego Machiavelli. Also Neustadt. And focus instead on Genovese, who offers leadership stratagems grounded in the realities of street-wise politics. Written as a personal memo to the newly elected, Memo to a New President is a compendium of sage advice drawn from scholarly, biographical, and philosophical literatures but conveyed through contemporary stories, age-old parables, witty narratives, and Genovese's finely tuned political sense. This remarkable book is one-of-a-kind, a refreshing departure from the standard textbooks on the American presidency.

Résumé
So you've gotten yourself elected presidentnow what? Help is here in the form of an imaginary memo from your former professor, who integrates the works of the great thinkers (Aristotle, Plato, Machiavelli, etc.) with contemporary scholarship to address the strengths, limitations, and possibilities of presidential leadership. Michael A. Genovese, a highly esteemed presidential scholar, culls numerous nuggets of wisdom about presidential leadership, including past presidents, condensing detailed and academically grounded insights into an engaging and entertaining read. All essential topics are covered, including: presidential character and personality; political institutions and opportunities; power versus leadership; and sources of and limits to presidential power. In-depth coverage of crisis management and wartime decision-making are unique strengths of the book. Chapters are brief and concise, making Memo to a New President far more interesting than supplements such as case studies or documents. Genovese's presentation allows readers to identify with the various constraints on America's chief executive and gives them an opportunity to apply their knowledge and preconceptions (often misconceptions) to the political realities that presidents routinely face. Students are left to grapple with a central question of the book: Is an effective presidency possible without undermining the essence of a democratic republic?
