            From Roosevelt to Bush: The American Presidency: Transformation and Change The Nature of the American Presidency A presidential system is a democratic alternative to a parliamentary system. It is a system of personal leadership by a popularly elected figure. Yet, it was designed by the Founding Fathers of the United States as a constitutional office, by contrast with that of the British monarchy under George III. The President, therefore, must act within a system of checks and balances laid down in the United States Constitution. The president is restricted both by Congress and by the Supreme Court. To what extent does this limit their effectiveness, especially in foreign policy. Was the Constitution drawn up for an isolationist state, rather than one which seeks to exert international leadership? For further lectures in the series, please follow this link.

                The Johnson Presidency was marked, almost from its inception, by the tragedy of Vietnam, the first war which the United States found it could not win. Yet this Presidency also saw a massive domestic reform programme. Johnson developed Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, greatly expanding the role of the federal government. The Presidents who succeeded Johnson have sought to limit the scope of the federal government, not to expand it. Did the Johnson Presidency, then, mark the end of an era?

                  The Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906 accelerates the dispersion of people and industry to the East Bay. Advances in engineering give rise to the first of California's massive water re-distribution projects paralleling the era of great bridge building. World War II sees the Bay transformed into the greatest shipbuilding center the world had ever known.

                    From Roosevelt to Bush: The American Presidency: Transformation and Change Dwight Eisenhower, President, 1953-1961 Eisenhower was elected on a programme of repudiating both Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, which the Republicans saw as socialistic, and Harry Truman's foreign policy which the Republicans saw as one of appeasement. Yet the Eisenhower Presidency was marked by the growth of consensus. He sought to heal the wounds which divided Americans, and to lower the temperature in foreign affairs after the death of Stalin. Critics argue that, in the search for consensus, he allowed deep-seated problems to fester, in particular civil rights. Was the price of consensus too high?

                      The post-War boom threatens the very survival of the Bay. We meet the leaders of the Save the Bay campaign of the 1960s and witness the birth of the national mass environmental movement. After people power triumphs, we look at how best to balance the competing demands of a major urban center set amidst an environmentally significant landscape.
