No Way to Pick a President
Psychology Press, 2001 - 303 strani
As the United States marks its first presidential election of a new century, Witcover shows us how professional mercenaries -- with little party loyalty and diminished political principles, driven by an insatiable need for money -- are poisoning public life. At the same time, politicians themselves have condoned and even encouraged these developments, responding to the demands of a media-driven age in which the press corps pursues its own quest for celebrity and financial reward.
Sharp, revealing, and rich with anecdotes, No Way to Pick aPresident offers a wealth of presidential history, from the role of the vice president's office to campaign funds, television and the electoral college.
