Presidents & the Presidency /essays by Stephen Hess

By (author) Hess, Stephen

This book contains a collection of Stephen Hess's best essays on the presidency. Written over a fifteen year period, the essays selected are just as relevant today as when they were first published. Each essay says something useful about the office of the presidency or a specific president. The book includes: " Presidential Qualities, " originally published when Richard Nixon was president, addresses the characteristics we should want in a chief executive regardless of whether or not we agree with him. " Why Great Men Are Not Chosen Presidents: Lord Bryce Revisited" asks whether changes in the process by which we select presidential candidates would result in different kinds of people seeking office. " Toward a More Functional Presidency, " written after Watergate, rethinks the appropriate role of the president and offers a job description.
