ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "The Presidency Today," by Edward S. Corwin and Louis W. Koenig. It represents in part, a compression of the insights about the Presidency that made Corwin's earlier volume a notable landmark in constitutional analysis. It sees it as an office whose powers are exercised in a tight legal world, involving the countervailing influences of the Congress and the court. A discussion of the selection and tenure of a President leads the authors to appraise the electoral system as it now stands.
