Summary
The extraordinary authority of the American presidency has no parallel in the democratic world. Today, that power rests in the hands of Donald J. Trump -- and rarely, if ever, has the nature of a president clashed more profoundly with that of the office. Unmaking the Presidency is the definitive account of the unprecedented confrontation between a man and the institution he has come to embody. The authors situate Trump-era scandals and outrages in the deeper context of the presidency itself. How should we understand the oath of office when it is taken by a man who may not know what it means to preserve, protect, and defend something other than himself? What aspects of Trump are radically different from past presidents and what aspects have historical antecedents? When has he simply built on his predecessors’ misdeeds, and when has he invented categories of misrule entirely his own?
