A charming fable about the power of a hat that takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride through French life during the Mitterrand years. Dining alone in an elegant Parisian brasserie, accountant Daniel Mercier can hardly believe his eyes when President François Mitterrand sits down to eat at the table next to him. After the presidential party has gone, Daniel discovers that Mitterrand's black felt hat has been left behind. After a few moments' soul-searching, Daniel decides to keep the hat as a souvenir of an extraordinary evening. It's a perfect fit, and as he leaves the restaurant Daniel begins to feel somehow ... different.

A Structural Critique of the Carter and Reagan Years
Author: William F. Grover
Publisher: SUNY Press
Category: Political Science
This book focuses, not on the Constitutional balance of power between Congress and the White Housea focus that restricts analysis to questions of meansbut on the more unsettling and often unexamined question of the ends of the presidency and American public policy. It offers a structural theory which links what a president can do to the underlying interests behindand ideology ofthe capitalist state. Structural theory insists upon an encounter between theories of the state and theories of the presidency, and in so doing steers the field of presidential studies into largely uncharted territory. Grover explores the tradeoffs and limitations encountered by Presidents Carter and Reagan as they pursued the goals of economic prosperity and national security. He argues that the limitations imposed on the presidency are more complicated than the personal deficiencies of a particular person. Such structural limitations, Grover notes, are not merely constitutional but economic and statist. His analogy of the president as prisoner in this larger sense is compelling.
