Description

This is more than a series of biographies of the Presidents of the United States, although extensive biographical articles on each of the Presidentsand Vice Presidents are included. It's a one-stop guide to the Presidency, arranged alphabetically for easy and quick access. Articles are cross-referenced and include sources for further reading, and photos, cartoons, and illustrations are used liberally throughout the text. Plus there are tables of Presidents and Vice Presidents, complete election statistics, a time-line of important dates in the development of the presidency, and a listing of Presidential museums, libraries, and historic sites. Never has this much information about our presidents--from Washington to Clinton been packaged so entertainingly in one book. The Young Oxford Companion to the Presidency of the United States is more than an essential reference for young adults. It's an invaluable and thoroughly enjoyable resource for students, teachers, and librarians.show more
