The Presidency in the Era of 24-Hour News
Jeffrey E. Cohen

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]


"[I]f Cohen does not find empirical resolution to the puzzles of the presidential news system, he does the next best thing by skillfully illuminating important targets of inquiry for future research. For this he is to be commended, and The Presidency in the Era of 24-Hour News deserves a wide audience."--Glenn W Richardson, Presidential Studies Quarterly


"Jeff Cohen does an outstanding job of explaining how changes in the media fundamentally affect presidential leadership."--George C. Edwards III, Texas A&M University

"This is a stunning book on how the emergence of new media has transformed the president's place in our democracy. Jeffrey Cohen shows how the evolving nature of media stunts presidential power and causes the president to focus on narrow slices of citizens rather than the public at large. His findings accentuate the new challenges facing America's democracy in the twenty-first century."--James N. Druckman, Northwestern University

"A very substantial contribution to the field. The conception of the interplay between the media system and the presidency that is provided by the author is more accurate than existing ones. This book should attract a fairly wide readership."--Thomas E. Patterson, Harvard University

"This book tackles important issues in the relationship between the president, the media, and the public. It makes a provocative argument about how changes in the relationship between these three parties have affected the ability of the news to affect presidents and the ability of presidents to lead. The big picture of this book is really interesting and important."--David E. Lewis, Princeton University

"A very impressive piece of scholarship. Cohen addresses a very important question: how have changes in the way American citizens obtain political information, as well as changes in the nature of that information, influenced presidential governing strategies. Furthermore, the book is very well grounded theoretically."--David C. Barker, University of Pittsburgh

"This book makes an important statement. I have seen no other recent book like it in terms of historical scope or nuanced understanding of the multiple factors that condition presidential communication in the age of new media. It has much to commend it to both scholarly and general audiences."--Scott Althaus, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
