Tough Times for the President:

Political Adversity and the Sources of Executive Power
Ryan J. Barilleaux and Jewerl Maxwell
ISBN: 9781604978179

“A fascinating, challenging, and important book. It looks at presidents in trouble, and the authors rightly claim that presidents are in trouble more often than they are in good times. … Barilleaux and Maxwell examine how presidents respond to tough times and what strategies they might employ to govern under such difficult and common circumstances. … Barilleaux and Maxwell have given presidency scholars much to chew on. … given the frequency of tough times, it behooves a president to explore the alternative approaches to governing outlined in this book.” – Presidential Studies Quarterly Read More..

Constitutional Democracy and Judicial Supremacy:

John Rawls and the Transformation of American Politics
Jerome C. Foss
ISBN: 9781604979282

"The best books on politics offer us fresh insight into the way things are and powerful arguments about how things ought to be. Jerome Foss's superb book accomplishes both of these ends, rescuing John Rawls's work from the dusty corners of overly abstract theorizing by emphasizing Rawls's dedication to a very practical reinvention of the American political experiment." —Micah J. Watson, William Spoelhof Teacher-Scholar Chair in Political Science, Calvin College Read More..

Doing Archival Research in Political Science

Scott A. Frisch, Douglas B. Harris, Sean Q. Kelly, and David C.W. Parker
ISBN: 9781604978025

"In my view, the papers of former members of Congress, committee records at the National Archives, and other archival materials are a woefully underutilized source of evidence in legislative scholarship. The chapters of this volume are simply the best treatment that we have of the practical logistics of conducting archival research about the national legislature. I recommend it highly." - C. Lawrence Evans, Newton Family Professor of Government, College of William and Mary Read More..
