Since the time of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, the American presidency has changed in profound ways. Chief among these has been the way presidents interact with the general public. The ten chapters of this volume, by presidential scholars Jeffrey Tulis, Glen E. Thurow, Thomas W. Benson, Roderick P. Hart, Thomas Goodnight, and George Edwards, among others, offer thought-provoking analyses concerning the role of presidential rhetoric in passing policy, generating support, and promoting public discourse.

Review quote

"This volume is unique [in] attempting to address and update the implications of the rhetorical presidency. I know of no other volume that attempts this. At this time, the book is needed so that we can go beyond the Reagan years, when, as Tulis points out, the rhetorical presidency was all the rage."--Theodore O. Windt, University of Pittsburgh
