Format: Paperback
Schlesinger's classic historical interpretation of the American preidency in the 20th century, although still controversial, has the power to convince any open-minded person of the growing power of the American executive after 1945. Well written and stylishly argued, the late historian speaks with great authority and experience. Still a masterpiece, which I encourage all my students to read and analyse. Essential reading for any student of the contemporary American political scene and still as relevant now as it was when first published

We all sensed it, but Arthur Meier researched and documented it. Sadly needing updating because the Imperial presidencies of the Clinton, Bush and even Obama years take his theory to new heights. A terrific book to read by anyone wanting to understand the US and its style of government, and the ruling culture that subsumes the main occupants of the White Palace...sorry I mean House.

The Nixon presidency brought down by criminal acts and the success and vulnerability of the generally successful Clinton and Reagan and the Contra affair show less than Imperial Presidency vulnerable to the Media Empire

A must for all students of American Politics or as a general read for anyone interested with the subject matter. An essential read that makes so much sense of all matters and presidents in America.
