Debuting in its first edition , The Contemporary American President explores the potential and limitations of presidential influence in times of rising public expectation for the office and the declining ability of presidents to meet it. It focuses on six major areas concerning the presidency— selection, power, accountability, decision making, personality, and leadership —and offers an appreciation of the challenges of the office as the institution attempts to function in an increasingly controversial political environment.
