Peter S. Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency

Publications

The Peter S. Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency has published four edited volumes, each marking an historic moment in its research and development. The first, From Votes to Victory: Winning and Governing the White House in the Twenty-First Century, represents the scholarly work of the center’s first symposium in 2008. The second, President or King? Evaluating the Expansion of Executive Power from Abraham Lincoln to George W. Bush, memorializes the results of a symposium in 2009 that was the first to include the Center’s Senior Presidential Fellows, former Democratic Presidential candidate Howard B. Dean III and Republican strategist and former White House advisor Edward J. Rollins.

More recently, two volumes were published in 2014, U.S. Presidential Leadership at the UN, 1945 to Present, which represents the work of a symposium hosted by the Center in October 2010, and Change in the White House? Comparing the Presidencies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, which is the result of a symposium held at Hofstra in April 2012.
