Description

When Franklin Roosevelt decided his administration needed a large executive staff, he instituted dramatic and lasting changes in thefederal bureaucracy and in the very nature of the presidency. Today, no president can govern without an enormous White House staff. Yet analysts have disagreed about whether the key to a president's success lies in his ability to understand and adapt to the constraints of this bureaucracy or in his ability to control and even transform it to suit his needs. In this volume, John Burke argues that both skills are crucial. Burke examines how the White House staff system - larger and more powerful than ever - interacts with a particular president's management ability and style. Beginning with the institutional presidnecy that emerged during the Roosevelt administration, this new edition includes a revised chapter on the Bush administration and a new chapter on Bill Clinton.
