Perspectives from abroad have long been a source of enlightenment and understanding for Americans wishing to reflect their society and political system. Up to the present, students in classrooms had to go back to Alexis de Tocqueville and Lord Bryce for profound insights on American politics. A more current view is found in the papers which constitute this second volume in the series. These papers were presented at the Miller Center in the period 1986-88. The contributors to this volume view the American presidency from diverse perspectives, while having in common the status of observers from outside the United States. Their insights grow out of their national perspectives. ; Contents: The American Presidency Viewed From Australia; The American Presidency: Some Soviet Perspectives; The Presidency: A View From England; The Presidency Viewed From the Middle East; Democratic Leadership in the Electronic Age; The Presidency: Reflections on the American and Australian Political Settings. Co-published with the Miller Center of Public Affairs.
