About this title

Synopsis:

A Call to Greatness: Challenging Our Next President examines how our next President can learn from the successes and failures of past Presidents to be an effective leader during a time of tremendous challenges at home and abroad. The present state of our union requires a creative reexamination of our national interests, a comprehensive vision, a leader with the ability to organize and marshal the best people and resources and a leader with the capacity to communicate this vision to our citizens and the world. This book has been circulated amongst the candidates for the 2008 United States Presidency prior to being published. The non-partisan, non-profit Center for the Study of the Presidency looks forward to the ensuing exchange of views on the nature of Presidential leadership and characteristics required of our next President.

Review:

"A Call to Greatness" is a challenge not just to the presidential candidates but to the nation itself. David Abshire draws from the lessons of history the fundamental values that must guide the next president - vision, integrity and statesmanship. We govern by leadership or crisis. David Abshire makes clear that it is time for leadership.--The Honorable Leon E. Panetta

Every presidential candidate--and every president--should read "A Call to Greatness." David Abshire has long been one of Washington's true Wise Men, and he teaches many important lessons from the past. At a dangerous time when leaders seem stuck in partisan bickering, Abshire shows what the people want and the nation needs.--Evan Thomas

Writing in the tradition of Richard Neustadt, whose memos were so helpful to an incoming John Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton, Abshire brings history alive, drawing from it wise lessons for the president immediately upon taking office. Mark this down for required reading in the next White House.--David Gergen, White House advisor to four United States Presidents
