Tevi Troy - Fight House: Rivalries in the White House from Truman to Trump
In his new book, Troy draws on his experience as a former senior White House aide and as the author of Shall We Wake the President?, What Jefferson Read, Ike Watched, and Obama Tweeted, and Intellectuals and the American Presidency to examine the role of internal struggles in presidential administrations since Truman. Placing each contention in the context of its time and profiling the key figures involved, Troy looks at the chief executives' roles in these struggles and assesses how the battles shaped both administrations and the larger political landscape of the nation. Questioning whether the "team of rivals" approach is always best, he proposes alternative ways to staff and organize the White House.
