Regulation in the White House The Johnson Presidency

by David M. Welborn

Part of the An Administrative History of the Johnson Presidency Series Series

Regulation in the White House The Johnson Presidency Synopsis

Regulation in the White House is an examination of regulatory policy and its development in the Johnson administration and the first comprehensive study of any presidency and regulation. Based upon a thorough analysis of presidential papers in the Lyndon B. Johnson Library, the book investigates the working relationships linking the presidency, regulatory commissions, and executive agencies with regulatory responsibilities in both the economic and social spheres. David Welborn finds that the president's business included regulation as a major component. Johnson's concerns in regulation were varied and complex. He and his aides worked assiduously and successfully to establish effective, cooperative relationships with regulators and to avoid the exercise of undue influence on particular regulatory determinations. In Welborn's view, Johnson traversed the treacherous ground of regulatory politics with adeptness and achieved his major purposes in regulation.

Regulation in the White House The Johnson Presidency Press Reviews

Professor Welborn's remarkably thorough, well-crafted study challenges much of our received wisdom about the president's role in regulation... The book is essential reading for students of the presidency or regulatory politics. --Paul J. Quirk, associate professor of political science, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
