Details

For more than two centuries, a president's term in office has begun in the same way—with an inauguration and the oath of office. But within that simple vow to "preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States," an extraordinary range of power and responsibility is placed on each new president. The Presidency is an intriguing exploration into what it means to be the president of the United States. Beginning with George Washington, who was sworn in on April 30, 1789, at Federal Hall in New York City, 43 men have assumed the title of President of the United States. This book examines how these men have each put their own stamp on the executive branch, and discusses how it has evolved as a reflection of their personalities and their visions for the country.
