Topics Politics, Law, and Government/General

Following a thematic approach, this study examines the nature and development of the contemporary Vice-Presidency from the end of World War II to the present. Natoli sheds new light on such areas as the vice-presidential selection process, the Vice-Presidency as a stepping-stone to the Presidency, the nature of the Vice-Presidency, the Vice-President as administration spokesperson, the impact of personality, the role of the Presidency in shaping the Vice-Presidency, disability and succession, the role of staff relations, the future of the Vice-Presidency, and more. Her research is solidly backed by personal interviews conducted with such political leaders as Gerald R. Ford, Hubert H. Humphrey, Dean Rusk, Clark Clifford, and Endicott Peabody. She gleans fresh insights from numerous other presidential and vice-presidential advisers and staff, and United States Senators.
