Acerca de


Details the institution of the presidency, explaining how it is structured, operated, and related to the other branches of government, with an emphasis on the 2000 election and how the system has changed in 2001.

From Booklist:

This third edition updates and revises the 1995 edition of a preeminent reference source on the U.S. presidency. Updating incorporates Bill Clinton's second term and many aspects of George W. Bush's first, generally ending with the 2002 State of the Union address. Revisions reflect new research published during the 1990s and early 2000s.

The two volumes provide a narrative and also almanac-type information. The history of the presidency; the powers of the office (for example, chief diplomat, commander-in-chief, chief executive); the president as a public figure; relations with other branches of government; the vice presidency; presidential succession; and many other topics are covered in 37 chapters authored by academic scholars. Of special note is a collection of charts scattered throughout the work, covering an eclectic range of facts: number of presidential press conferences, percentage of voting-age population casting votes in presidential elections, presidential campaign funding, press secretaries, and more. Many of these charts have been extracted from other CQ publications. In addition, the work contains the texts of notable speeches, pertinent Supreme Court decisions, inaugural addresses, and State of the Union messages, among many other primary source materials. Each volume contains a helpful keyword index to the contents of both volumes.

Guide to the Presidency is an essential purchase for public and academic libraries. In these tight economic times, however, small public and college libraries already owning the second edition may reluctantly resist purchasing this one, especially if they have other information on the presidency since 1995.
