The American Presidency Under Siege. To understand the siege that the presidency is under today, we must examine both external factors that threaten the presidency (such as the ever-burgeoning power of interest groups and the development of candidate-centered campaigns) and internal factors (the explosion of bureaucracy in the executive branch and within the White House staff).

The American presidency, Gary L. Rose argues, is under siege. Surrounded and blockaded by a reactionary Congress, an entrenched bureaucracy, an aggressive media, lobbyists, political action committees, and special interest groups, American presidents fail not because of a lack of ability or character but because of the political system and style of politics inside the Beltway. Rose ascribes this emergence of a political system that obstructs presidential leadership to the decline of political parties as electoral and governing mechanisms

In my opinion, it has not yet received the recognition it deserves. Winkler traces the presidential use of "terrorism" from the Vietnam War to the present with great skill, highlighting its instability and continual mutation. The best part of this book is the archival work that went into it. Winkler gives invaluable glimpses into the bowels of the White House PR apparatus as it wrangles over public terminology. The result is a compelling inside view of presidential rhetoric, not simply an external.

The book is designed to stimulate lively debate and critical thinking about the modern process of presidential selection. Eleven issues that impact directly on the selection of the president of the United States are examined in a scholarly and argumentative format. Essays pro and con on each issue educate students in the dynamics of presidential selection and help them evaluate competing perspectives on today s pressing issues.

Rose ascribes this emergence of a political system that obstructs presidential leadership to the decline of political parties as electoral and governing mechanisms. As political parties have declined, presidents have lost vital political connections that historically have enhanced their capacity to lead. He presents a variety of prescriptive measures, including political-party and legal reform, that have the potential to restore political parties and the governing capacity of the presidency.
