Item Description: Crown Pub, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near-Fine. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Near-new condition. Stated First Edition. Number line: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. NO remainder marks or price clippings. 450 pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. Tight spine, clean pages. Dustcover shows light wear (NO tears). From Publishers Weekly: Five of the last nine U.S. presidents first served as vice-presidents. This statistic, argues syndicated columnist Witcover, makes clear the recklessness of George Bush's choice of J. Danforth Quayle as his running mate. Most of the book is an astute, scathingly ironic history of vice-presidential politics--generally colorful, if at times inevitably tinged with the dullness that clings to that office. All presidential nominees claimed that their choice for v-p was the person "best qualified" to become president if destiny dictated, but in nearly all cases, the author demonstrates, the selection was motivated by either the need for geographical balance on the party ticket, the desire for a subservient yes-man or similarly short-sighted considerations. Witcover ( Whose Broad Stripes and Bright Stars? ) proposes that presidential nominees be required to submit a list of potential running mates for review by the national convention. Alternately, the president-elect might submit vice-presidential choices to Congress for approval. Witcover's suggested reforms should stir national debate. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal: If for no other reason, Dan Quayle deserves credit for raising the vice presidency to the forefront of presidential politics. Supporting the view of John Nance Garner, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first vice president, who said, "it wasn't worth a bucket of warm spit," some politicians and political scientists, as well as historians (notably Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.) want the office abolished. Unfortunately, the public remains largely indifferent. Witcover, a prolific journalist, covers all these points in a most readable and comprehensive treatment of the vice presidency from 1789 to the present. He notes that Jimmy Carter's selection and treatment of his running mate is the model for the modern presidency. In conclusion, Witcover wants presidents to be held responsible for what amounts to their first decision. Recommended for all political collections. - William D.

Item Description: Times Books. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 192 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.A provocative reconsideration of a presidency on the brink of Civil WarAlmost no president was as well trained and well prepared for the office as James Buchanan. He had served in the Pennsylvania state legislature, the U. S. House, and the U. S. Senate; he was Secretary of State and was even offered a seat on the Supreme Court. And yet, by every measure except his own, James Buchanan was a miserable failure as president, leaving office in disgrace. Virtually all of his intentions were thwarted by his own inability to compromise: he had been unable to resolve issues of slavery, caused his party to split-thereby ensuring the election of the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln-and made the Civil War all but inevitable. Historian Jean H. Baker explains that we have rightly placed Buchanan at the end of the presidential rankings, but his poor presidency should not be an excuse to forget him. To study Buchanan is to consider the implications of weak leadership in a time of national crisis. Elegantly written, Bakers volume offers a balanced look at a crucial moment in our nations history and explores a man who, when given the opportunity, failed to rise to the challenge.

Item Description: The Congressional Globe Office,, Washington, 1861. Original Pamphlet. 8°. Washington, The Congressional Globe Office, 1861. 8°. 28 pages. Original Pamphlet. Original brochure. Waterstained. Unopened original title-wrappers. Even though not stated, this copy is from the library of Arthur M.Schlesinger, Jr. Andrew Johnson (December 29, 1808 – July 31, 1875) was the 17th President of the United States (1865–69), succeeding to the Presidency upon the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. He was the first U.S. President to be impeached. At the time of the secession of the Southern states, Johnson was a U.S. Senator from Greeneville in eastern Tennessee. As a Unionist, he was the only southern Senator not to quit his post upon secession. He became the most prominent War Democrat from the South and supported the military policies of US President Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War of 1861–1865. In 1862 Lincoln appointed Johnson military governor of occupied Tennessee, where he proved to be energetic and effective in fighting the rebellion and beginning transition to Reconstruction. Johnson was nominated for the Vice President slot in 1864 on the National Union Party ticket. He and Lincoln were elected in November 1864. Johnson succeeded to the Presidency upon Lincoln's assassination on April 15, 1865. As president he took charge of Presidential Reconstruction – the first phase of Reconstruction – which lasted until the Radical Republicans gained control of Congress in the 1866 elections. His conciliatory policies towards the South, his hurry to reincorporate the former Confederates back into the union, and his vetoes of civil rights bills embroiled him in a bitter dispute with some Republicans. The Radicals in the House of Representatives impeached him in 1868 while charging him with violating the Tenure of Office Act, a law enacted by Congress in March 1867 over Johnson's veto, but he was acquitted by a single vote in the Senate. He is the most recent President to represent a party other than the Republican or Democratic parties, having represented both the Democrats and the National Union Party. He is consistently ranked by historians as being among the worst U.S. presidents. Johnson was an unsuccessful candidate for election to the United States Senate from Tennessee in 1868 and to the House of Representatives in 1872. However, in 1874 the Tennessee legislature did elect him to the U.S. Senate. Johnson served from March 4, 1875, until his death from a stroke near Elizabethton, Tennessee, on July 31 that same year. In his first speech since returning to the Senate, which was also his last, Johnson spoke about political turmoil in Louisiana. His passion aroused a standing ovation from many of his fellow senators who had once voted to remove him from the presidency. He is the only former President to serve in the Senate.
