Course Description
HON271 American Presidency (3-0-3)

In the course of the 20th century, the American presidency has emerged as the premier national political institution, eclipsing the Congress in both power and prestige. This course will investigate the origin and development of the presidency as the single most powerful office of national government, and explore the extent and limits of contemporary presidential power by studying the practice of various recent presidents, primarily Truman through Clinton.
