From Eleanor Roosevelt's deep involvement in social issues to Hillary Rodham Clinton's successful campaign for the U.S. Senate, the First Lady has been a continuous source of interest and intense scrutiny. American First Ladies examines how this position has evolved through history and how each First Lady has adjusted to the demands of being the wife of the president.
Beginning with Martha Washington and concluding with Laura Bush, these biographical essays provide a chronological account of each woman's life and assess her place in the development of the institution of First Lady. Now extensively revised, American First Ladies offers essential facts about each woman based on the latest research on the history of the presidency and the role of the First Lady. The bibliographies for the essays have been updated, and there are new articles on Abigail Adams, Frances Cleveland, Lou Hoover, Bess Truman, Mamie Eisenhower, Rosalyn Carter, and Nancy Reagan. The book concludes with the Siena College First Lady Polls (1982, 1993), a table of Presidents and First Ladies (1789-2001), and a comprehensive index.From Booklist:
The work of almost 30 historians, this volume is an update of a 1996 publication. Laura Bush makes a debut appearance, and there are new entries on Abigail Adams, Frances Cleveland, Lou Hoover, Bess Truman, Mamie Eisenhower, Rosalynn Carter, and Nancy Reagan. Other entries have been revised. Coverage is restricted to the 39 women who were married to U.S. presidents during their terms, thus excluding those like Martha Jefferson who died before their husbands took office. Because of this, there are some presidential administrations that are not represented. Entries provide several pages of detailed biographical information followed by a bibliographic essay, each of which has been updated for this edition. Entry length varies from six (Letitia Tyler) to eighteen (Eleanor Roosevelt) pages. Two appendixes follow the text: the Siena College First Lady Polls for 1982 and 1993, and a chronology. RBB
