Abstract and Keywords

This article reviews how students of the presidency, policy implementation, public policy, public management, and public administration have identified three sets of factors as critically affecting the success or failure of policies pursued administratively. It also shows how much literature that is relevant to the study of the administrative presidency is being ignored by those who do identify with the study of administrative strategies for advancing presidential policy agendas. It then provides an agenda for future research on the presidentializing of the federal bureaucracy in America. Surveys of federal bureaucrats have advanced the understanding appreciably of the politicization of the Senior Executive Service (SES), and they should continue to play an important role in future research.

Keywords: presidency, policy implementation, public policy, public management, public administration, federal bureaucracy, administrative presidency, presidentializing, America
