The Quest for Leadership: Thomas E. Cronin and His Influence on Presidential Studies and Political Science by Michael A. Genovese
The book evaluates the leadership successes and failures of US presidents on a wide range of issues, from education policy, social security reform, health care, and the surveillance of Americans to the tending of coalitions. It also analyzes presidents as war-time leaders, reviews America's standing as a world leader, and reflects on American nationalism during World War II.
