Synopsis

Offering an engaging overview of the U.S. presidency and all past presidents, this valuable tome asks a variety of questions, from the trivial to the topical, that further expands one’s understanding of America’s highest office. With an intriguing range of questions about religious affiliations, unusual backgrounds, and tidbits of odd trivia—from Which president killed a man in a duel? to Who was the first Baptist to become president?—this reference also covers former presidential candidates, first ladies, key appointments, and election results. Revealing important answers to foreign policy questions and decisions made during times of war, as well as presidential actions in times of economic boom and bust, isolationism and expansion, and economic policies and unusual anecdotes, this fun and absorbing anthology provides a thorough overview of more than 200 years of U.S. presidents.
