For courses in the American Presidency
An overview of the American presidency that focuses on institutional context
An American Presidency: Institutional Foundations of Executive Politics provides a thorough, engaging overview of the most important political office in the world’s most powerful country. In addition to providing detailed coverage of executive politics, author William Howell uses the presidency as a point of departure for broader thinking about political power and democracy. Designed to inform, to enlighten, and to stimulate debate, An American Presidency gives students the knowledge they need to think critically about the American presidency — and about our political system as a whole.
An American Presidency: Institutional Foundations of Executive Politics is also available via REVEL™, an interactive learning environment designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn.
