Phillip G. Henderson is associate professor of politics at The Catholic University of America.


To be serious about the Presidency in this raucous age of political scandal and stardom is a daunting task. Phillip Henderson has done a commendable job in assembling the research and thoughts of competent scholars who have kept a cool watch over our years of White House turmoil and measured it against our past. This is an instructive guide on Presidential leadership showing in a concise manner where we started, how we have traveled, and where we are today. -- Hugh Sidey, columnist and former White House Correspondent for Time The Presidency Then and Now provides rich historical insight, but it also deserves praise for placing the presidency of Bill Clinton in context-institutional, historical, rhetorical, and political. Henderson has assembled an outstanding panel of contributors, and the book is a valuable addition to the literature on the presidency. -- Ryan J. Barilleaux, Miami University
