About the Author:

Richard S. Conley is associate professor of political science at the University of Florida. His research areas include the presidency, presidential-congressional relations, and comparative executives and legislatures. He has written numerous articles, book chapters, and several books, including the Historical Dictionary of the Reagan-Bush Era, Historical Dictionary of the George W. Bush Era, and .Historical Dictionary of the Clinton Era.

Review:

This title in Rowman and Littlefield’s series of essential information on a broad range of subjects covers all aspects of the U.S. presidency. Author Conley is a specialist on presidential-congressional relations, particularly the modern period. The main entries in the A–Z arrangement are clear, succinct, balanced, and comprehensive, including unsuccessful candidates (e.g., Robert LaFollette and George Wallace) and related topics, such as the war in Iraq. The book is enhanced by cross-references, see also references, a wide range of helpful appendixes, and an extensive bibliography, which includes 2014 works. This will be valuable for 2016 election questions and afterward in public and academic libraries. (Booklist)

Conley, author of several such dictionaries—on Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and an earlier overview of the US presidency — offers here an expansive work covering not only presidential figures but also vice presidents, selected cabinet members, significant Supreme Court appointees, and those candidates for presidential office who were defeated. Entries feature significant historical events that impacted individual presidencies and a vast landscape of topics, including US and world history, art, business, cities, countries, cultures, customs, film, global conflicts, international relations, literature, music, philosophy, religion, sports, and theater. Entries are conveniently cross-referenced to make browsing enjoyable and easy. The 23 appendixes present supplemental information such as election history beginning with George Washington's administration, approval data (Truman through Obama), and a list of 1975–2009 incidences (i.e., ‘instances’) when the president sent US troops abroad, which must be reported to Congress under the War Powers Resolution. There is an extensive, nearly 45-page bibliography at the end of the book that encompasses major biographical works, presidents' autobiographies, and writings from scholarly experts in political science and history. The dictionary is a concise secondary source for background information for student papers.

Summing Up: Recommended. High school, community college, and undergraduate students; general readers. (CHOICE)
