PUBLISHER: University of Pittsburgh Press

Including the conflict in Kosovo, the World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle, and new developments in the 2000 presidential campaign, The Postmodern Presidency is the most comprehensive and current assessment of Bill Clinton's presidency available in print.
The Postmodern Presidency examines Clinton's role in redefining the institution of the presidency, and his effect on future presidents' economic and foreign policies. The contributors highlight the president's unprecedented courtship of public opinion; how polls affected policy, how the president gained "celebrity" status, how Clinton's "post-modern" style of public presidency helped him survive the 1994 elections and impeachment, and how all of this might impact future presidents.
This new text also demonstrates how the Clinton presidency changed party politics in the public and Congress, with long-term implications and costs to both Republicans and his own Democratic party, while analyzing Clinton's effect on the 1990s "culture wars", the politics and importance of gender, and the politics and policy of race.
This text is a must for anyone who studies, teaches, or has an interest in the American presidency and politics.
