CQ Press guide to the White House staff.

Warshaw, Shirley Anne.

It may seem more than strange that presidents from George Washington to Franklin Delano Roosevelt depended on a single assistant, referred to as the secretary to the president. And in that era, presidents paid for their assistants out of their own pockets. Obviously, much has changed. Warshaw (political science, Gettysburg College) describes the evolution and current responsibilities of White House Staff, and examines executive-legislative relations, organizational activities, White House-cabinet relations, and policy making. The book is divided into two main parts: building the foundations of the White House staff and the operations of the modern White House staff from 1939 to the present. It will attract researchers and readers interested in the American presidency, public policy, and public administration. CQ Press is an imprint of SAGE Publications.
