About this book

Five presidents (Eisenhower, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, and Obama) have been elected to and served a second term. Seemingly free from electoral pressure, each president has taken a unique approach to their second term, and the book seeks to unpack the rationale behind their decisions and actions in their final years of power.

About the authors

Daniel P. Franklin is Associate Professor of Political Science at Georgia State University, USA.

Reviews

“Franklin (Georgia State Univ.) examines the trials faced and opportunities afforded to lame duck presidents, men who ‘begin to hemorrhage influence from the moment they are reelected.’ … Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduate and graduate collections.” (R. P. Seyb, Choice, Vol. 53 (7), March, 2016)
