ANNETTE M. KIM & WILLIAM G. RESH


Annette and Bill will discuss their recently released
and highly rated books


  


Rethinking the Administrative Presidency Trust, Intellectual Capital, and Appointee-Careerist Relations in the George W. Bush Administration.  Relying on data drawn from surveys and interviews, Resh rigorously analyzes the argument that presidents typically start from a premise of distrust when they attempt to control federal agencies. 


Scholars will find Resh’s analysis illuminating, and practitioners will find his insights constructive.” — James P. Pfiffner, George Mason University, author of The Managerial Presidency


With Sidewalk City, Annette Miae Kim provides the first multidisciplinary case study of sidewalks in a distinctive geographical area. She focuses on Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, a rapidly growing and evolving city that throughout its history, her multicultural residents have built up alternative legitimacies and norms about how the sidewalk should be used.


“Kim has produced a new conceptual and representational paradigm. Both scholarly and readable, Sidewalk City should interest anyone who thinks about cities, public spaces, and people.” — Margaret Crawford, UC Berkeley


Both books will be available for purchase and signing
