The Presidential Dilemma reflects on the idea that as our country’s problems grow, our politicians seem to shrink. Arguing that American presidents of the last forty years have largely failed to meet the needs, expectations, and responsibilities placed upon them, the book discusses how presidents might better maximize their opportunities for leadership and suggests a distinctive theory of presidential politics: presidents, facing a system of multiple veto points, seek to maximize power and influence. This third edition of Genovese’s stimulating book is thoroughly updated to reflect presidential development in recent years, and a new introduction makes his arguments current.
