HASH(0xa2776ab0) out of 5 stars Outstanding Book About a Legendary Educator Oct. 30 2008
By James Strock - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Guardian of the Presidency is an outstanding book, which presents the perspectives of historians, journalists, academics, politicians, friends and family on the late Richard Neustadt. Neustadt's unique combination of practical experience and academic rigor underlies his noteworthy contributions to the study of presidential leadership and leadership generally. The book adds tremendous value in discussing the enduring lessons and implications of Neustadt's work. It's also marked by unmistakable affection for a generous man who educated many and continues to inspire. Guardian of the Presidency will be of particular interest as a new administration takes office in 2008-09.

HASH(0xa26f0084) out of 5 stars the most interesting perspective Dec 14 2007
By Brooklyn - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Guardian of the Presidency: The Legacy of Richard E. Neustadt Richard Neustadt worked with 7 US presidents and his narration of the PBS documentary of the presidency made him familiar to many viewers. He was a well-loved professor at Harvard's Kennedy School of Gov't (which he helped to found) shaping the minds of many of this generation's leaders. The book is written by those who knew him well, from Al Gore to Jonathan Alter, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Arthur Schlesinger and many more. The chapters reveal as much about the lives of the writers and the times we live in. It's politics and the life of those who live and breathe it.
