Presidential Accountability: New and Recurring Problems

Synopsis

This book assesses the state of presidential accountability in the post-Reagan era. It looks at five major areas of concern for students of the presidency. These problem areas concern: presidents, national security, and civil liberties; controlling the intelligence community; the politized nature of the Justice Department; celebrity politics and symbolic manipulation; and the popularity of the Reagan administration and its implications for accountability. The research concludes that in the post-modern presidency, we have lost the desire and power to keep presidents accountable for their actions.
