Appeared in Choice on 1986-03:
A scholarly contribution on an uninteresting, but not unimportant, subject. Natoli, who is a member of the editorial board of the Presidential Studies Quarterly (1971-), obviously noticed a deficiency in the executive leadership literature on the role of the vice president. Her solution is to present information on the vice presidency around a number of themes, such as the use of the office as a stepping stone to the presidency, the nature of the vice presidency, and other factors relevant to personality and roles of individuals occupying the post. Perhaps the most original contribution of the book is the number of personal interviews conducted with political leaders such as Gerald R. Ford, Hubert Humphrey, Dean Rusk, and Clark Clifford as well as numerous other senators and presidential advisors. These interviews supplement a number of biographies by and about vice presidents. The research is well documented by an excellent bibliography and the added bonus of a bibliographic essay. Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students in political science.-J.D.
