Recapturing the Oval Office

RecapOval

Brian Balogh and Bruce Schulman’s edited collection of essays on contemporary presidential history is proof that presidential scholarship is back in vogue.  PHN’s own Gareth Davies features in the penultimate chapter on “The Changing Presidential Politics of Disaster” which examines presidential reactions to natural disasters from Coolidge to Nixon.

For a more extensive review of the book, see Prof. Andrew Rudalevige’s article in The Chronicle.
