Governance V studies and compares the structure and functions of governance. The first section of the book examines the authority of Supreme Court decisions, political reform and Congress, and the role of presidential speech writers in executive leadership. The second part of the volume then turns to the culture of governance in the public and private sectors. The third section shifts from institutions and culture to the dynamic processes of governance and the issues with which governance is seized. A scholar, a diplomat and a governor address the key questions about process and issues in governance. Contributors: Louis Fisher, Congressman David E. Price, C. Landon Parvin, William Bragg Ewald, Jr., Sander Vanocur, Ray Scherer, Robert Donovan, James P. Pfiffner, Ambassador George McGhee, and Governor Lowell P. Weicker, Jr. Co-published with the Miller Center.
