This publication from Cambria Press is released in conjunction with the 2015 annual meeting of the American Political Science Association (#APSA2015) The book's main focus is on presidential leadership and draws inspiration from the scholarship of eminent political scientist Thomas E. Cronin. From evaluating the leadership successes and failures of President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama (e.g., on education policy, social security reform, health care, the surveillance of Americans) to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan and their handling of coalitions, this book also discusses presidents as war-time leaders, presidential leadership and authority, public leadership, US world leadership, and the role of chief justices. In addition, the book touches on leadership in higher education and in the global corporate context. Given its coverage, this book will be an important resource for many years to come. The Quest for Leadership, edited by distinguished political scientist Michael A. Genovese, brings together the thought-provoking analyses and critical discussions of top scholars and practitioners. This book is a must read not only for political scientists but also for anyone with an interest in leadership, especially in US politics.
