Jeff Tulis wins 2018 APSA Legacy Award for book: Rhetorical Presidency
Jeffrey Tulis

This award is given to a “living author for a book, essay, or article, published at least 10 years prior to the award year that has made a continuing contribution to the intellectual development of the fields of presidency and executive politics.”


Presidents & Executive Politics (PEP) of APSA is the premier association of scholars devoted to the study of the presidency and executives (formerly known as the Presidency Research Group). To that end, it welcomes diverse theoretical perspectives, analytical techniques, and data sources as they contribute to the advancement of scholarship and teaching. It also invites the contributions and perspectives of other disciplines. PEP values the establishment and enhancement of non-partisan links between scholarship, the real world of presidential and executive politics, and public policy.


The prize has been awarded three times previously: to William Howell (Chicago), Samuel Kernell (UC, San Diego), and Stephen Skowronek (Yale).
