Guide to the White House Staff is an insightful new work examining the evolution and current role of the White House staff. In eight thematically-arranged chapters, it provides a study of executive-legislative relations, organizational behavior, policy making, and White House-cabinet relations. It also makes an important contribution to the study of public administration for researchers seeking to understand the inner workings of the White House. In thematically-arranged chapters, Guide to the White House Staff: - introduces the first members of the White House staff and details the need, statutory authorization, and funding for staff expansion. - addresses the creation of the Executive Office of the President (EOP) and a formal White House staff in 1939. - explores the statutes, executive orders, and a succession of reorganization plans that have helped shape and refine the EOP. - traces the evolution of White House staff from FDR to Obama and the specialization of staff across policy and political units. - explores how presidential transitions have operated since Eisenhower created the position of chief of staff. - explains the expansion of the president's in-house policy-making structures, beginning with national security and continuing with economic and domestic policy. - covers the exodus of staff and the roles remaining staff have played during the second terms of presidents. - examines the post-White House career patterns of staff. - this valuable new reference will find a home in collections supporting research on the American presidency, public policy, and public administration.
