In the latest volume in this classic series, Rockman, Rudalevige, and Campbell once again bring together top-notch scholars, this time to take a comprehensive look at the first two years of Barack Obama's presidency. Assessing Obama's political strategy, as well as his administration's successes and setbacks, chapter authors critically examine a presidency marked by continued partisanship, major policy battles, and continued global turmoil.

He also has been a recipient of the Herbert A. Simon Award. Andrew Rudalevige is the Walter E. Beach '56 Chair of Political Science at Dickinson College, and has held visiting posts at Princeton University and the University of East Anglia, England. His books include The New Imperial Presidency and Managing the President's Program, which was awarded the Richard E. Neustadt Prize. Colin Campbell is the retired Canada Research Chair in U.S. Government and Politics and emeritus professor in political science at the University of British Columbia, and visiting professor at the U.S. Studies Centre at the University of Sydney.
