Product Description

The office of president is a unique position. Presidents have spent their time in office differently; they've come from dissimilar backgrounds and they've left distinctive legacies, but their time as "Commander in Chief" sets them apart in our nation's history. Chapters on each president provide a brief timeline, along with a summary of their life from birth to the White House to later years. Concise and to-the-point, this guide provides an informative tour through the events and people who were so important to the country's history. Center-section of black-and-white glossy portrait plates are included, as well as an appendix with statistics and other information. 660 pages, indexed, softcover.

Publisher's Description

From birth to manhood, presidency and post-presidency, THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTS brings to life the men who have shaped the highest office in the land and affected the course of the United States from its founding to the present day.

            Beginning with George Washington, who had already refused to be made king of this country when he reluctantly accepted the office of president, this fascinating book takes the reader all the way through the 2008 election of Barack Obama. Each comprehensive yet concise portrait is written to bring the man behind the office vividly to life, including the influences of childhood, education and previous careers, style, and his successes and failures as president. Revealing anecdotes, famous (and infamous) quotes, and scholarly interpretations by historians capture each man's philosophy of leadership and his vision for America.

            A special section of tables at the end of the book summarizes important facts about the presidents and their terms of office, including information about first ladies, vice presidents, presidential elections, Cabinets and leading officials, political control of Congress, presidential historical sites, and much more.
