Hatred of America's Presidents - Personal Attacks on the White House from Washington to Trump (Hardcover): Lori Cox Han Hatred of America's Presidents - Personal Attacks on the White House from Washington to Trump (Hardcover)
Lori Cox Han
R2,552 Discovery Miles 25 520 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This work examines expressions of personal hostility and animosity toward presidents-even beloved ones-throughout American history and their impact on policymaking, politics, and culture. People involved or simply interested in politics often ask whether today's political environment is more toxic than ever before. Hatred of America's Presidents: Personal Attacks on the White House from Washington to Trump presents an impartial and authoritative history of invective toward the White House so readers can determine the answer for themselves. The book focuses on the most representative and commonplace attacks of a vitriolic and personal nature, detailing who instigated and trafficked in the attacks and how presidents, administrations, and political parties defended themselves. It also illustrates how honest disagreements about policy-such as FDR's New Deal, Ronald Reagan's Central America policies, George W. Bush's invasion of Iraq, and Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act-fueled expressions of hatred and condemnation. Finally, the book includes perspectives from both the right and the left on the legitimacy of these attacks and the victims' defenses as well as their impact on American politics and policy. * Investigates a unique form of expressions of hatred toward American presidents, focusing on the personal rather than the political * Covers every president from Washington to Trump * Includes coverage of personal attacks on First Families * Details how presidents and allies responded to these attacks

Advising Nixon - The White House Memos of Patrick J. Buchanan (Hardcover): Lori Cox Han Advising Nixon - The White House Memos of Patrick J. Buchanan (Hardcover)
Lori Cox Han
R1,031 Discovery Miles 10 310 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In 1966 Richard Nixon hired Patrick J. Buchanan, a young editorial writer at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, to help lay the groundwork for his presidential campaign. Fiercely conservative and a whiz at messaging and media strategy, Buchanan continued with Nixon through his tenure in office, becoming one of the president's most important and trusted advisors, particularly on public matters. The copious memos he produced over this period, counseling the president on press relations, policy positions, and political strategy, provide a remarkable behind-the-scenes look into the workings of the Nixon White House-and a uniquely informed perspective on the development and deployment of ideas and practices that would forever change presidential conduct and US politics. Of the thousand housed at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, presidential scholar Lori Cox Han has judiciously selected 135 of Buchanan's memos that best exemplify the significant nature and reach of his influence in the Nixon administration. Here, in his now-familiar take-no-prisoners style, Buchanan can be seen advancing his deeply conservative agenda, counterpunching against advisors he considered too moderate, and effectively guiding the president and his administration through a changing, often hostile political environment. On every point of policy and political issue-foreign and domestic-through two successful campaigns, Nixon's first term, and the fraught months surrounding the Watergate debacle, Buchanan presses his advantage, all the while honing the message that would push conservatism ever rightward in the following years. Expertly edited and annotated by Han, Advising Nixon: The White House Memos of Patrick J. Buchanan offers rare insight into the decision-making and maneuvering of some of the most powerful figures in government-with lasting consequences for American public life.

Nancy Pelosi's rise to speaker of the House of Representatives, Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign: clearly women are moving to center stage in US politics. In this wide-ranging text, Lori Cox Han explores whether - and if so, how - their presence is changing the political process. Han first provides a solid context, thoroughly covering the history of the women's movement, suffrage, the contours of feminism, and issues of equality. She then turns to women as voters, activists, candidates, officeholders, and policymakers and provides a broad yet gendered look at both mass politics and political institutions. Substantially expanded and updated, this new edition offers thorough grounding in political science scholarship. It considers women in all arenas of government. It addresses diversity - including ideological diversity - in the women's movement. It includes biographical profiles of prominent women leaders. Throughout, Han highlights women's political leadership to engage students and stimulate classroom discussion about women's role in the operation of our governing institutions. It presents a concise yet wide-ranging introduction to the role of women across the spectrum of US politics.

From the political rumor mill to pop culture, all signs suggest that the United States is finally ready for a woman in the White House. But is the vision of an imminent Madam President truly in line with today's political reality? ""Rethinking Madam President"" offers a critical assessment of the inroads made by female candidates into the previously male bastion of electoral success - exploring whether they actually apply to the presidency. The authors tackle a range of provocative issues: the conflation of the presidency with masculinity, particularly when it comes to security and military concerns; media coverage focusing, even today, on the novelty of a female candidate; public support for women that often evaporates in the voting booth; and more. Although Madam President is not an impossibility, they conclude, it would be a mistake to ignore the very significant hurdles that women still face on the path to the Oval Office. This title reveals the harsh political realities still facing women on the road to the White House.

This volume analyzes and compares the use of communication strategies of presidents and their administrations during the television age of politics. The study begins in 1961 - the start of Kennedy's administration - which represents an era of politics that has been greatly defined by mass media's participation. Communication strategies emerge for every president and can shape, to varying degrees, the relationship that the president has with the press and the public. To understand how a president communicates is to understand an important base of power for the modem presidency. This book demonstrates that various factors can play a role in whether or not a present succeeds at controlling the political agenda. Two critical factors include presidential rhetoric and the president's relationship with the news media. The concluding argument demonstrates that communication strategies have become an important and permanent part of the everyday operation of the White House. Presidents must use the press to govern, but they do not have much control over the final message, which creates many challenges for successful presidential leadership. Also, many implications exist about the role that communication strategies play in the actual act of governing, and the question remains as to whether an effective communication strategy equates to true presidential leadership and/or effective governing.

A president who distances himself from stagecraft will find himself upstaged. George H. W. Bush sought to "stay the course" in terms of policy while distancing himself from the public relations strategies employed during the administration of Ronald Reagan, his predecessor. But Bush discovered during his one-term presidency that a strategy of policy continuity coupled with mediocre communication skills "does not make for a strong public image as an effective and active leader in the White House," as author and scholar Lori Cox Han demonstrates in "A Presidency Upstaged."
Incorporating extensive archival research from the George Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University--including documents only recently available through requests made under the Freedom of Information Act--Han""thoroughly examines the public presidency of George H. W. Bush. Han analyzes how communication strategies, relationships with the press, and public opinion polling shaped and defined his image as a leader. The research for this study also includes content analysis of press coverage (both print and television) and major public addresses during the Bush administration.
"Lori Cox Han skillfully uses archival materials, interviews and leading academic studies to present a thorough analysis of George H.W. Bush's public presidency. Her book is a valuable addition to the literature on presidential communications, media, and politics, and also stands as a very useful resource on the events of the first Bush presidency."-Mark Rozell, professor of Public Policy, George Mason University and author, "Power and Prudence"

When will the United States elect its first woman president? Many political observers believed that Hillary Clinton would win the White House in 2008, and many still believe she is a strong contender for 2016. Yet, while many believe that electing the first woman president is not a question of if, but who and when, media speculation on the topic has yet to move it from an interesting talking point to political reality. The question remains: Just how close are we to breaking this final political glass ceiling? By merging the two literatures of women and politics (especially women as candidates) and presidential campaigns and elections, a winning strategy for women candidates can emerge by analyzing what political science research tells us from past campaigns and what we can expect in the future.

What is leadership? Not only has that question been debated since the beginning of human culture and society, but it's a moving target based on the definer, and the epoch. The definition can be thought-provoking and profound: "A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him," (Lao Tzu, 6th century BC ). Or the profundity may lie shrouded in the prosaic: "A leader is one who has followers," (Peter Drucker, 20th century). However you define the concept, today's challenges for leaders of all stripes are monumental, and the need for effective leadership is huge. More than anything, this set travels farther and digs deeper than most leadership books. It takes us from mere explanations of leadership to an understanding of it as part of the human condition. In Leadership at the Crossroads, contributors from a wide variety of fields, including management, economics, political science, philosophy, sociology, history, literature, and psychology, explore the many facets of leadership. The set comprises: --Volume 1: Leadership and Psychology --Volume 2: Leadership and Politics --Volume 3: Leadership and the Humanities Topics include: ethics and accountability, leadership styles, the differences between leadership and management, the poison spread by toxic leaders, inspirational leadership, choosing and monitoring leaders, leadership development, women and minorities in leadership, leadership and diplomacy, leadership in literature and the arts, military leadership, and much more. Collectively, this set showcases traditional and emerging approaches to leadership in both theory and practice and raises new questions broughton by society's new challenges. It also suggests solutions for developing and promoting leadership in the corporate world, politics and diplomacy, religion, education, non-profits, and the arts. Whether identifying qualities that will serve a U.S. president well, or the characteristics of the essential "can-do" supervisor in today's corporation, Leadership at the Crossroads supplies insights and intelligence that will help leaders make the most of the challenges and opportunities lying before them.
