Presidential Cabinet Making: Lessons for the Political System
Nelson W. Polsby suggests that the pattern of appointments in the Carter cabinet shows a type of presidential leadership that the Nixon presidency did not put out of style. The causes of President Carter's brand of leadership are traced to the Democratic nomination process, however, rather than to attitudes about presidential authority that Carter evidently does not share with former president Nixon.
