"…well written and engagingly contemporary. Recommended…"—Choice

The president of the United States is a highly visible public figure, a bearer of immense responsibility, and the subject of intense scrutiny. He is accountable for war, economic depression, domestic strife, national security, partisan politics, and overseas conflict. 

Presidents, Third Edition closely examines the hopes and disappointments, the victories and defeats, and the integrity and weaknesses of the men who have held this office. Featuring up-to-date information, including the January 2009 inauguration of Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the United States, this new edition is an expertly written, detailed reference that narrates and explains the lives and careers of America's presidents. It is an essential guide for anyone seeking a complete understanding of the development and workings of the United States government, as well as a great read for those who are fascinated by the interplay of politics, power, career, and legacy. Comprehensive and accessible, Presidents, Third Edition contains biographies and portraits of all presidents, a detailed chronology of the life of each president, and suggested further reading about each president.
