Tough Times for the President: Political Adversity and the Sources of Executive Power by Ryan J. Barilleaux and Jewerl Maxwell

“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
