The Presidency: A Question of Power. American Government Issues Series, Number 1.
Hargrove, Erwin C.; Hoopes, Roy
An historical analysis of the use and abuse of power in the Presidency is provided in this supplementary student material. The content includes an analysis of the historical roots of presidential power, popular support, cooperation and conflict with Congress, the international role of the presidency, presidential decision making, the relationship with the courts and the news media, presidential personalities, mechanisms for presidential constraint, the future of the Presidency, and a conversation with the authors about the role of the Presidency and individual presidents. The unit can stand alone or be used in conjunction with lectures, discussions, supplementary sources, or textbooks at the secondary and college levels. Use in conjunction with a standard text or in any nontraditional approach is recommended due to the highly provocative questions raised in the materials. A four-page instructor insert provides a list of essay and multiple-choice test questions and suggestions for use of the material. (Author/DE)
