Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"One of the most substantial and penetrating empirical investigations yet made into the consequences of an aggressive administrative strategy for presidential leadership." -- American Political Science Review

"Robert Durant's new book is destined to become a classic. The product of years of painstaking research, The Administrative Presidency Revisited is brimming with findings, insights, and theoretical contributions that speak to some of the central questions of governance. . . The concluding chapters alone are so theoretically inventive and integrative that they are likely to provide the stimulus for further scholarship for years to come." -- Laurence J. O'Toole, Jr., University of Georgia

"I am impressed by the detailed analysis of the mechanisms of the administrative-presidency strategy and the manner in which the Reagan administration applied them. This study represents an excellent example of how presidents employ their political resources in an attempt to influence bureaucratic policy." -- Richard Waterman, University of New Mexico

Robert F. Durant is Professor of Government and Public Administration at the William Donald Schaefer Center for Public Policy, University of Baltimore.
