"Jeffrey Cohen has written a tightly constructed, carefully argued, methodologically sophisticated, and historically grounded study of an important U.S. political institution. . . . The Politics of the U.S. Cabinet is a significant work of original research that will be frequently cited in any future studies of U.S. executive organization."
--American Political Science Review
"Jeffrey Cohen provides a detailed quantified analysis of the characteristics of presidential cabinets from George Washington through Ronald Reagan's first term. . . . [and] concludes with a particularly interesting theoretical argument."
--Political Science Quarterly
"The American presidential cabinet enjoys a long tradition as a highly visible, easily identifiable governmental institution. . . . [But], the institution has not received the attention one might have expected in contemporary political science. Part of this neglect may stem from the lack of an established theoretical framework from which to approach research on the cabinet. Providing a remedy for this situation is by far the greatest contribution of Jeffrey Cohen's new book."
