Summary
  • "Intellectuals and the American Presidency examines the complex relationships between America's presidents and intellectuals since 1960. From Arthur Schlesinger's work in John Kennedy's campaign and administration to Daniel Patrick Moynihan's role as the Democrat in the Nixon White House, through Sidney Blumenthal's efforts to secure intellectual support for a scandal-plagued Bill Clinton, presidents have had to address the question of intellectual support. How they did this has helped to shape their presidencies and their historical reputations
  • Using both popular sources and some never-before-used archived material, Intellectuals and the American Presidency looks at the advisers who served as liaisons to the academic community, the presidents' views of those intellectuals, and how they fit in with the presidents' plans. In this bipartisan study, political insider Tevi Troy analyzes how American presidents have used intellectuals to shape their images and advance their agendas."--Jacket
