A complete look at every Presidents' who, what, when, where, why, and, how

Offering an engaging overview of the U.S. presidency and all past presidents, this valuable tome asks a variety of questions, from the trivial to the topical, that further expands one's understanding of America's highest office. With an intriguing range of questions about religious affiliations, unusual backgrounds, and tidbits of odd trivia from "Which president killed a man in a duel?" to "Who was the first Baptist to become president?" this reference also covers former presidential candidates, first ladies, key appointments, and election results. Revealing important answers to foreign policy questions and decisions made during times of war, as well as presidential actions in times of economic boom and bust, isolationism and expansion, and economic policies and unusual anecdotes, this fun and absorbing anthology provides a thorough overview of more than 200 years of U.S. presidents.

Review:

"Informative resource" American Reference Books

"Single volume standout ... excels at presenting a great deal of information in a succinct, manageable question and answer format." Asheville Citzen-Times

"In question-and-answer format, Hudson (first amendment scholar, Vanderbilt U.) concisely explains key facts about US presidential campaigns, cabinets, and policies as well as trivia about the First Family." Book News

"[C]hapters feature not only historical data but a personal look at the man who was president in a manner that will keep the interest of young readers. Students will be particularly interested in the personal aspects of the men who seem so removed from our lives in most history books. Many first ladies are mentioned, which is refreshing. Placing the president within the happenings of the period supports understanding, as well. A comprehensive index is included." Children's Literature

"A beefy contribution to presidential studies, the kind of resource from which one could easily build an interesting term report for school. A serious piece of presidential scrutiny." Kirkus Reviews

"...a storehouse of information about all aspects of the presidents' lives." Oklahoma City Oklahoman

"If there’s something you need to know, if you’re selected for a presidential trivia game show, if you want to impress people with White House facts, you want to own this book." The Children's Book Review

"Hudson has done an excellent job." VOYA
