Abstract: (Show)
The American constitutional system and the realities of American politics make the personal qualities of the American chief executive of great importance for the nation and the world. A variety of intellectual strategies have been proposed for studying presidential psychology. Because the matter of who occupies the Oval Office can have literal life and death consequences, presidential personality requires close, continuing intellectual attention.
