The Bush Presidency: First Appraisals

By Bert A. Rockman; Colin Campbell | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This chapter benefits from research I am doing on post- World War II presidentialcongressional relations, supported by the Brookings Institution, the University of Wisconsin Graduate School, and the research funds of the Hawkins Chair in Political Science, University of Wisconsin-Madison. I benefited from the comments of Leon D. Epstein. John Bader provided research assistance and also offered useful comments.

In comments on this artter Leon D. Epstein made a distinction between "party government" and "responsible party government," the latter being associated with the doctrinal school of the report of the American Political Science Association (see below). The distinction is a useful one; primary emphasis here is on many of the preferences drawn from the responsible party school.
