The shocking events of September 11--and the ensuing war against terrorism--thrust the secretary of defense into the spotlight and re-emphasized the great importance of this job. In addition to directing the efforts of more than 3 million people in the military, the secretary plays a key role in advising the president on military action and ensuring that all aspects of military action are carried out successfully.

"Each of these titles(The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court/The Secretary of Defense/The Vice President of the Unitd States) provides general information on the history, responsibilities, and requirements of an important job in American government. While various individuals who held these positions are mentioned or pictured, the books are intended mainly as overviews of offices. Illustrated with black-and-white and color photos, diagrams, charts, and boxed "USA Facts," they are written in a clear yet spare style. Due to the limited scope and information included, and the availability of the material in general encyclopedias, these volumes are additional purchases for larger collections."
