Which president was wounded during the Revolutionary War? What is an executive order? How many bills did each president veto? Which president's wife was the first to be called the first lady? These are just a few of the many questions answered in CQ's Desk Reference on the Presidency.
This ready-reference offers a wealth of information on the presidency. The 500-plus questions have been selected to provide an uncomplicated look at the American presidency, its organization, procedures, and history, as well as the presidents themselves and their families. Chapters include president's powers and duties, elections that brought them to office, highlights of presidential administrations, and the inner workings of the White House and the Executive Branch.
The Desk Reference's question-and-answer format allows readers to quickly search for the answers they need -- by turning to the appropriate subsection of questions, by following out cross-references between questions, and by using the extensive, descriptive index to find the specific questions with the needed information.

This addition to the publisher's Desk Reference Series follows the same Q and A format, with answers to such questions as, "What went wrong in the presidential election of 1800?" Though it is useful, we are looking forward to a new edition to help explain what went wrong in 2000. REVWR
