The late-twentieth century has given rise to the most concentrated period of divided party government in American history. With one party controlling the presidency and the opposing party controlling Congress, the veto has inevitably become a critical tool of presidential power. Combining sophisticated game theory with unprecedented data, this book analyzes how divided party presidents use threats and vetoes to wrest policy concessions from a hostile Congress. Case studies of the most important vetoes in recent history add texture to the analysis, detailing how President Clinton altered the course of Newt Gingrich's Republican Revolution. Offering the first book-length analysis to bring rational choice theory to bear on the presidency, Veto Bargaining offers a major contribution to our understanding of American politics in an age of divided party government.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Cameron's is at once the most extensive theoretical and empirical study of vetoes in the US federal system ever undertaken. The range of predictions generated from a quite spare and economical family of models is truly impressive, as are the author's ingenuity and persistence in testing them. This will be a landmark, not just in the study of veto bargaining in the United States, but also in the study of vetoes in other separation-of-powers systems and in the study of executive-legislative relations more broadly conceived.' Gary Cox, University of California at San Diego
'Using as his vantage point an unquestionable terrain of strategic engagement in executive-legislative relations - the presidential veto - and displaying historical sensitivity, institutional savvy, and just plain good analytical sense, Charles Cameron shows how much formal modeling matched with empirical sophistication can contribute to our understanding of modern chief executives in the legislative context.' Mark A. Peterson, UCLA School of Public Policy and Social Research
'Veto Bargaining is the best book on the presidency since Neustadt's Presidential Power. Cameron's systematic theoretical and empirical approach represents nothing less than a new way to study the presidency.' Barry Weingast, Stanford University
"This pathbreaking study should be in the library of every serious student of US national politics." Choice
